Data Governance: Let’s Level Up at LC!

Hey there, data enthusiasts! You know that feeling when you upgrade your phone and suddenly everything runs more smoothly? Well, that’s what we’re aiming for with our data governance at Lewis & Clark.

We’re taking our data game to the next level, folks. Imagine a world where everyone knows their way around data like it’s their favorite song on Spotify.

We’re talking Data Governance:

  • fostering data literacy,
  • promoting security consciousness, and
  • ensuring everyone is cognizant of the available repositories and resources for informing effective outcomes.

Whether you're creating data...or using data to make decisions. And the best part? Every single one of us has a role to play in this data adventure. It’s like a team sport, and together, we’re unstoppable. (For the less athletically-inclined: data governance is like a cozy blanket, and we’re about to knit it into the snazziest quilt you’ve ever seen).

The roadmap to greatness starts with awareness of DataGovernance@LC. We’ll be posting more about the journey over the next few weeks—stay tuned!
