Data Governance

Data Governance

A well-defined and communicated data governance structure and policy, with clearly established roles and responsibilities and a universally understood central repository for data definitions, standards, use and interpretation. Data governance defines processes, standards, and controls for data entry, use, and reporting to ensure efficient and effective operations. The purpose is to ensure institutional data are managed as university-wide assets to ensure efficient and effective operations and to facilitate reliable reporting, analytics, and decision support.
