Princeton Data Governance

There are a number of data governance groups at Princeton, most notably the Data Governance Steering Committee and the Data Management Advisory Group (DMAG), that play a major role in the work that CeDAR performs.

Data Governance Steering Committee 

The Data Governance Steering Committee is an Executive-level group that provides a structure for campus-wide discussions, determining directions and setting strategies concerning the protection of Princeton data and for guiding campus initiatives that relate to the use of University information.  Membership is comprised of Academic Officers and Officers of the Corporation from the Office of Finance and Treasury, Office of the Registrar, Office of the General Counsel, Office of the Dean of the Faculty, Audit and Compliance, Human Resources, Office of the Executive Vice President and Office of Information Technology. 

Data Management Advisory Group (DMAG)

The Data Management Advisory Group (DMAG), whose membership consists of designees of the Data Stewards, focuses on issues of data management as they relate to student, employee, faculty, financial, facilities, donor and health record data. The group assesses best practices and issues relating to data classification, data sharing, data safeguarding and proper use. The group functions both as a forum to discuss data-related topics that are initiated by the Data Governance Steering Committee and to investigate and recommend best practices and/or policies that require the consideration and possible approval of that Committee.
