Abstract/ Summary

The newly formed University of Maine System Data Governance program was launched to improve the System's capacity to collect information and deploy resources in service to the students and in response to Maine's dire demographic and workforce challenges.

The UMS campuses and administrative units make up a complex system that requires a strategic approach to data collection and analysis. From understanding the intricacies of distance education and online programs, to aligning human resource and financial department codes, unified data governance is essential to ensuring the integrity and reliability of the University of Maine System's data.
