Data Governance Council

The Data Governance Council consists of designated officials who have planning, policy-level, and management responsibility for data within their functional areas. The Data Governance Council works to ensure and support the effective management of data assets of the university by making policy recommendations, establishing procedures and standards, advocating for appropriate resources, and guiding and monitoring data governance efforts.

A primary function of the Data Governance Council is to provide ongoing management and oversight for UW–Madison’s Data Governance Program. The Data Governance Council manages data governance initiatives, issues, and escalations in an effort to improve and promote data quality and integrity, appropriate and ethical use of data, compliance, and data literacy and awareness.
