UNC-Wilmington’s Excel Spreadsheet

Forum research uncovered a variety of strategies for tracking and storing team records. One of the easiest and least resource intensive options is to track information via a secure Excel spreadsheet. For example at UNC-Wilmington, the case manager in the Dean of Student’s Office keeps all BIT records in Excel. Key fields tracked in the spreadsheet include referral date, type of concern, and whether the case was brought to the institution’s BIT. 

The Excel spreadsheet is password-protected and the case manager is the primary user. The Dean of Students also has access to the document.
