Managing IU Data

Data governance is a collection of activities which help to ensure the proper management of institutional data, a strategic asset at IU. Our data governance program is led by the University Data Management Council (UDMC). The UDMC promotes a culture of data stewardship, consistent practices, and adherence to IU standards and policies.

This site will inform IU users how to safely access, store, share, and dispose of institutional data. Browse the navigation bar above for the following main topics:

    • Classification (four-tier system)
    • Governance (team members and policies)
    • How Do I? (frequently asked questions)
    • Tools & Resources
    • Training

The value of data as an institutional resource is increased through its widespread and appropriate use; its value is diminished through misuse, misinterpretation, or unnecessary restrictions to its access.

Report an IT incident

Keep IU secure. Stay up to date on IT incident management and report suspicious or actual incidents involving misuse or inappropriate release of data.
