Data Governance

Regis University recognizes that data are critical assets and enterprise-wide data represent a resource that the university need to consider in strategic decision-making. To support effective and innovative management, university data must be accessible, must correctly represent the information intended, and must be easily integrated across Regis University’s information systems. The purpose of data governance through the Data and Rules Congress is to develop university-wide policies and procedures that ensure that university data meet these criteria within and across Regis University’s data systems.

Data governance is shared among the executive sponsors, data stewards, data custodians, and data users through the activities of the Data and Rules Congress.

  • Data Stewards represent a broad perspective of university data functions and have planning and policy responsibility and accountability for data systems.  Data stewards are appointed by the Executive Sponsor to implement and create data policies. As members of the Data and Rules Congress, they are responsible for safeguarding data from unauthorized access and abuse through established procedures and educational programs.
  • Data Custodians are university employees whose duties provide them with an intricate understanding of the data in their functional area. They work with the data stewards to establish procedures for the responsible management of data, including data entry and reporting.
  • Informer Committee members are formally trained Informer report writers and are responsible for the output of data into operational departmental reports; however, some reports are utilized university wide. Members are data custodians who can ensure that all reporting adheres to the same standards and governance, regardless of the reporting tool used.
  • Module Administrator Committee (MAC) custodians are university employees whose duties provide them with an intricate understanding of the university ERP system, Ellucian Colleague, and the module in their respective areas.  They work with the data stewards to establish procedures for responsible management of the module processes, access, upgrades, testing, and third party systems that impact the Colleague system and modules.


  • These representatives contribute to the data governance program and enable the practice of making strategic and effective decisions regarding Regis University's information assets.

    Program Sustainability Project

    The Office of the Provost is spearheading a University-wide program sustainability project, as are many other public and private universities across the United States. It is essential that Regis University’s academic portfolio comprises the optimal programs that are aligned with our mission, distinctive in the marketplace, financially sustainable and meet the needs of our students and their current or future employers. To ensure that we are meeting these goals, the Office of the Provost, in consultation with the Regis University Academic Council (RUAC), will be looking thoroughly at program sustainability in all colleges.

    It has been many years since we have completed a comprehensive review of the University’s academic portfolio.  Typically, RUAC reviews programs every five years with a process that focuses primarily on academics.  The sustainability project takes a broader view, including areas that are attractive for increased University investment.

    Happily, this spring’s financial reports show that Regis is stable and has a promising future.  Nevertheless, our resources remain limited.  We must allocate resources thoughtfully and strategically with the goal of generating the revenue we need to grow programs, support faculty in their teaching and scholarship, and ensure student success.   

    Faculty engagement is critical to the sustainability project’s success. Here is how it will work:
    First, this website for the “Program Sustainability Project” has been created to provide information and updates, as well as an opportunity for comment from the Regis community as we progress in this endeavor.  

    Second, the University Analytics and Reporting (UAR) department, an important part of the Office of the Provost, has started work this summer by contacting all departments and working with them to create data summaries for each. Departments are providing an abstract of the program’s contribution to the Regis Jesuit mission, strategic fit, and distinctiveness. Departments are invited to prepare a commentary on the data supplied by UAR.  A sample of the UAR data summary is available on this website. 

    Third, this fall the Regis University Academic Council (RUAC) will begin to evaluate the information and provide recommendations to the Provost.  The Provost will examine the reports with the deans, who will engage with faculty to solicit input. 

    We anticipate this will be an illuminating process which will give the University much greater insight into the entire academic portfolio, and provide faculty a greater understanding of their department’s strengths, contributions and possible areas for growth or improvement. I believe this process will help us all create a stronger institution that is better able to serve our students, faculty and continue to fulfill purpose in our community.

    I look forward to working collaboratively on this project. As always, you are welcome to submit questions or comments via provost@regis.edu, or drop by office hours from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday afternoons after the fall class start date.
