What is Atlas?

In 2017, the University Registrar, University Privacy Officer, and the Center for Academic Innovation began working on a set of U-M Learning Analytics Guiding Principles. What was born was Atlas.

Atlas displays hundreds of pages of course, instructor, and major profiles that allow students, faculty, and staff to gain insight into information such as popular courses and grade distribution. The data can be used to make informed decisions in regards to planning, reporting, and more.

So here are a few tips and tricks on how to find courses (specifically ENTR courses) and start building your schedule.

1. Browse Courses: sort by Subject to find ENTR classes!

Quick tip – ENTR 390.###/490.###/599.### are special. “Special Topics in Entrepreneurship” courses all have different section numbers that focus on unique topics: e-Commerce, Digital Product Design, Organizational Values & Ethics in Startups, Urban Entrepreneurship Practicum, and OrgMgmt: How to Build a Killer Team.
