Welcome to the Office of Data Governance for Northern Arizona University.

Fall of 2016, with the primary goal to improve the accuracy, consistency, and
availability of quality data and information. NAU’s Data Governance Model
demonstrates the ultimate owners of NAU data are the Arizona Board of Regents,
NAU’s President, and NAU’s Executive Team. Various Data Governance Advisory Committees have been strategically developed to provide guidance
through the involvement of functional areas from across the university.
Security, communication, and collaboration between teams are keys to ensuring

Data Governance Training
The Data Navigation Overview Training will help newer employees find and use the most frequently
requested reports and build contacts for questions they can’t answer. The
session is also valuable for employees who have an interest in broadening their
understanding of data and resources at NAU. The training focuses on “hot
topics” – offices or issues that receive the most questions. An overview
of NAU’s new Data Governance Initiative will be provided, and experts from the
Budget Office, the Comptroller’s Office, Cline Library, Human Resources, and
Institutional Research and Analysis will provide key insight. This
training will not provide in-depth content about each of these areas, but
instead will provide a broad overview of available data and resources.
Online training available soon
