Data Management Committee

The Data Management Committee (DMC) is at the heart of UW’s data governance efforts. Their core mission is to address the following issues related to data and information management across the UW campuses:

To be consistent in the approach, designation, and governance of data, metadata, and the information base of business processes.

To clearly define commonly-used structures, models, definitions, and processes, with the goal of supporting collaboration and effective decision-making University-wide.

To provide guidance and recommendations for expanding access, improving quality, strategic planning, assuring security, and business performance management.
