EagleData Warehouse


This Web-accessible source for university statistics and reports is available to authorized users inside the AU community. The information presented in EagleData is extracted nightly from the university's operational data in the Colleague and Benefactor systems. Data is then placed in an Oracle-based data warehouse for storage and reporting.

EagleData was created to provide fast and easy access to information in a self-service manner, so users can get reports when they need them. To standardize statistical reporting across campus, EagleData incorporates counting rules established by the office of Institutional Research and Assessment. Please note: This system uses your synchronized my.american.edu user name and password.

  • Academic and Admissions staff and staff, who are given access to enrollment and admissions data, such as tuition and revenue reports, enrollments by terms, graduation statistics, grade distributions, student evaluation-of-teaching results, and admissions statistics. 
  • Budget and Human Resources administrators, who use the data warehouse to obtain reports about employees and associated budgets for their units.
