Data Governance at Rochester

Every day, data at the University are valued, created, used, stored, archived, reported, or deleted. Data governance sets the standards and protocols for the exchange, integrity, and security of this information at Rochester. Data governance also enables accurate analytics and reporting, which generate answers to key questions and inform decision-making by leadership, internal audiences, and external agencies.
