Welcome to Institutional Data Governance

Use Strategic Data With Confidence

The Institutional Data Governance (IDG) Practice at the University of Calgary aims to formalize the management of data as an institutional asset. IDG provides a central and common understanding of how business data is defined, produced and used across the university, thus enabling the use of strategic data with confidence. IDG efforts are supported by the university’s executive leadership team.

In this web site, you’ll find information about the IDG Practice, including what we’re about, foundations of the practice, our approach, how we’re guided, our advisory group and data stewards, resources and tools. We invite you to contact us to explore how your business area can benefit from data governance.
