Data Governance Roles and Responsibilities

Data Users

The data user role includes those staff members who have direct responsibility for entering and using data as part of their daily tasks.  This may include someone who loads application data from a third party vendor, a cashier who accepts and records payments from students, a staff member in financial aid who creates aid packages for students, a human resources staff member who enters data relating to new hires, etc. Data users participate in the data governance process as follows:

  1. Attend training relating to data standards and data entry.
  2. Be aware of standards
    1. Ensure manual data entry follows university standards
    2. Help identify and correct data which may not be entered correctly.

Some data users may participate in the data standards committee as Data Stewards for their functional area.
