Take practical steps to initiate and sustain a substantive data governance program at your institution.

Strong data governance ensures that your institution is using information well when making data-driven decisions and complying with mandates around the collection, use, and sharing of data. During the COVID-19 era, accuracy in presenting timely information transparently to students, employees, parents, and the public make data governance all the more critical. Learn concrete, practical steps for building collaborative data governance that will improve efficiency and quality for your campus data partners. 

 During this webcast, you will: 

  • Understand legal, regulatory, and business requirements that necessitate data governance 
  • Design a data governance framework 
  • Establish critical personnel roles and responsibilities  
  • Make information readily available and discoverable to stakeholders 

Additional Resource: Data Governance Implementation Workbook

As part of your registration for this webcast, you will receive a nine-page workbook that you can use to design, launch, and manage data governance at your institution. The workbook includes a data governance framework, roles and responsibilities, situational assessment, and pointers for selecting a data governance information system. 

Who Should Attend

This program is ideal for anyone who participates in nascent data governance efforts and/or those who may be frustrated by a seeming lack of progress with such efforts at their institution. We encourage institutional researchers, institutional planning and effectiveness, information technology, and a wide range of functional/operational area managers to attend, including teams from enrollment management, student affairs, academic affairs, and business and finance.
