Data Administration & State Reporting

SUS Data Workshop

The Florida Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admission Officers (FACRAO) in conjunction with the Florida College Registrars and Admissions Officers (FCRAO), the State University System (SUS) and the Florida Department of Education join annually to create one large conference titled the Florida Higher Education Summit.

This partnership has allowed public higher education institutions in Florida to come together in face to face meetings to discuss, debate, and learn at this conference.  The SUS Data Workshop is the Board of Governors (BOG) portion of the Florida Higher Education Summit and will most likely be the one and only opportunity annually to discuss such a huge array of topics.  During the SUS Data Workshop, there will be various sessions that will provide an opportunity for the BOG and SUS institutions to ask questions and share information regarding the State University Database System (SUDS), system development, and legislative updates, just to name a few.  There will be decisions and action items stemming from these sessions and we strongly encourage all Data Stewards, Sub-Certifying Officials and Information Technology partners to attend and participate.
