Data Governance Projects
Stanford University Data Stewardship (SUDS) and Institutional Research & Decision Support (IRDS) have created 'maps' (aka 'placemats') illustrating properties of and relationships between, entities and populations in a number of subject areas. The purpose of these illustrations is to facilitate a consistent understanding of these concepts in both internal and external communication and reporting.
This is one aspect of the data stewardship efforts currently underway in diverse subject areas including HR, faculty, finance, sponsored research, and student data. We welcome suggestions for future projects or areas of focus. Please contact Kathleen Warmoth (firstname.lastname@example.org (650) 7232822), Data Governance Manager, with any questions or comments.
