Our Strategy

Picture Summary of Data Governance Stakeholders

Data governance at Georgetown is a collaborative, team effort with a common goal to ensure our data framework allows for data quality, integrity, and security. The responsibility for well managed data sits with every department that creates and consumes data.

Effective data governance requires university departments to proactively communicate about pending data related projects, issues with current processes, and peer best practices to adopt. While the Data Governance Advisory Committee is one forum for these conversations to happen, other discussion groups and task forces work in parallel to the committee by executing priority projects or providing additional forums for communication and collaboration.
