UTA Data Governance Program

The goal of the University of Texas Arlington (UTA) Data Governance (DG) program, is to establish data management best practices, clear accountability, data stewardship and a decision-making structure for an ongoing Data Governance program.  

This program will result in a sustainable and efficient set of controls, data standards and data policies for UTA, with the potential to extend its scope over time to other areas within UTA.

High-priority business drivers have been identified that reflect the value of implementing an ongoing Data Governance Program within UTA.  


These include:

  • 20/20 UTA strategic plan

  • 60x30TX Texas State plan

  • National and international accreditation and ranking processes

  • Business and operational efficiencies
