Data Governance

Guiding Principles

  • Data is owned by the university – it does not belong to any specific unit.
  • Data is a university asset that should be leveraged, managed, and protected, and its governance is a shared institutional responsibility.
  • Data should be corrected at the source system when possible.
  • Data quality enforcement and improvement is ultimately the responsibility of the system owners.
  • Data stewards should determine approaches for remediation and ensure remediation task assignments are completed in a timeline consistent with university priorities.
