The Office of Data Governance (ODG) was established in 2021 to improve the way WashU manages, accesses and analyzes university data. By creating a comprehensive business glossary & report catalog, while simultaneously, expanding data management, reporting and integration capabilities, WashU will achieve greater efficiencies and effectiveness for future expansion.

Advancing WashU Through Data-Informed Decision-Making

Our Purpose

Our institution-wide, data-informed vision is built on guiding principles such as:

  • Leverage executive sponsorship & data stewardship expertise across all data domains.
  • Program & Data Stewardship Roadmap development
  • Data Stewardship roles & responsibilities
  • Promote best practices for policies, processes and standards.
  • Measure & monitor program metrics. 
  • Collibra Data Intelligence Application 
  • Communications, change management, relationship building & marketing 
Data Stewardship Community

WashU’s Data Stewardship Community is a key component enabling a successful Data Governance Program. Through collaboration with executive sponsors, data stewards, data coordinators and data partners we will create a sustainable data and analytical data-informed cultural shift.
