The Data Stewardship Council (DSC) is charged with developing and managing UNCG’s data strategy and implementing institutional data management best practices, standards, and policies.  The data strategy is a comprehensive vision and road map for collecting, managing, sharing, and using institutional data.  Best practice data management is designed to ensure the accuracy, consistency, trustworthiness, usability, security, and accessibility of UNCG’s data assets.

DSC members actively engage with the Institutional Research & Enterprise Data Governance team and other Information Technology Services partners, and fellow DSC members to:

  • collaboratively define a set of institution wide rules in the form of policies, standards, requirements, guidelines, data definitions, and training that comprise the University Data Governance Program,
  • ensure that the data sets under their authority are managed in compliance with the Data Governance Program, resolve known data-related issues, and 
  • proactively stop data-related problems before they begin.

DSC members are authorized to make campus-wide rules and key decisions regarding the treatment of institutional data and empowered to enforce the Data Governance Program.
