Ensuring that University data is both protected and made available to people who need it is a massive undertaking. Depending on your need, you may need to consult:

  • the Data Governance Oversight Group (DGOG),
  • a compliance unit,
  • a subject matter expert, or
  • the person or group responsible for the system or service where the data resides.

The University also has guidance in place to help anyone affiliated with the University, but primarily faculty and staff, understand the requirements of the data in their care so that they’re empowered to make decisions at the individual or unit levels as much as possible. However, some data uses always require reviews. This section can help you understand the various places on campus that take requests related to using data. If you hit a wall, the DGOG can help you figure out what’s needed.
