Data Stewards

Data Stewards are assigned by, and are accountable to, Data Trustees. Data Stewards help define, implement, and enforce data management policies and procedures within their specific Data Domain. A Data Trustee may delegate to the Data Steward the authority to represent the Data Trustee in data-related policy discussions.

Data Steward responsibilities include:

  • Serve as the primary point of contact and coordination for data management issues and operations within the steward’s data domain
  • Identify major data systems where data under the Data Steward’s responsibility resides
  • Classify data according to Data Classification policy, working with security, privacy, and data officers, and review classifications at least annually
  • Classify institutional reports and dashboards that deliver or expose institutional data for which the Data Steward is responsible (following this procedure)
  • Review and approve requests for access to Institutional Data 
  • Complete Data Classification and stewardship training and participate in ongoing data stewardship policy discussions
