Policy and Steering


Data Management is committed to providing the best possible service to the university. This task includes balancing diverse university needs, which begins within our own team. Data Management includes both ITS and Planning and Budget employees who help us build a bridge between the technical and the content facets of our information tools.

We also have an excellent Steering Committee with representatives from all over the university who share in the decision-making process.
