Data Liaisons are Miami Dade College employees who partner with and are trained by the Division of Strategy and Institutional Effectiveness (SIE) on behalf of their campus, academic school/program, or district unit to increase the College's capacity for data informed decision making, research, data analysis, assessment, and evaluation.

Although their specific roles and responsibilities vary, Data Liaisons serve as consultants and resources to their leadership, respective units and campus on matters related to research, data analysis, assessment, and evaluation for internal purposes only.
