Data Owners

Data owners are appointed by the President, the Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, and the Executive Vice President for Administration.  They are typically senior administrators who have authority to determine business definitions of data, grant access to data, and approve the secure usage of those data, for the functional units within their delegations of authority.  By understanding the information needs of the University, data owners are able to anticipate how data can be used strategically to meet the University’s mission and goals.

Data owners have ultimate authority and responsibility for the access, accuracy, classification, and security of the data within their delegations of authority.  Each owner appoints data stewards for specific subject area domains.  UNM's appointed data owners, and their areas of responsibility, are listed below:
