Tips for completing the template The first time you complete the template, you will notice that some of the questions will ask you to provide a summary or data related to the last seven years. After the first year, you will only need to provide data and information for the current year. Thus, the first year of completing the template will be more time consuming than in future years. One of the benefits of the template is that it eliminates the need for lengthy reporting. You should make your case in as concise a manner as needed to portray your unit accurately. Save your work often to avoid losing any information. We strongly recommend that only one person from your department or program works on the template at one time; otherwise, some of the data or work you have done could be lost. Similarly, be careful not to have multiple versions of the template open at one time, or you could lose some of the data you have entered. Do not include any hyperlinks in the template. If you upload documents, PDF versions of documents are preferred, but other versions are acceptable if they work better for you. For example, you may wish to use Excel spreadsheets for your enrollment data so that you can track it over time.
