Data Governance

Data Governance is a discipline that enables UBC to formalize and guide behaviour over the definition, production, and use of information.

Institutional data is a strategic asset for UBC; therefore, appropriate governance for management and use of data is critical to enable faculty, students and staff to make decisions. Inappropriate governance can result in inefficiencies and exposes the university to unwanted risk. A consistent, repeatable, and sustainable approach to data governance is necessary in order to protect the security and integrity of UBC's data assets.
