Late last year, Ohio State’s Data Governance team launched a new initiative to standardize institutional definitions, partnering with colleagues across the university.
The first batch of these definitions, including full-time student, part-time student, and student rank has been finalized and is posted on the approved institutional definitions webpage . University members are encouraged to review these definitions and keep them in mind when discussing and analyzing student-related data.
The second batch of student-related terms, including definitions for full-time, part-time, and half-time students, is ready for community review. The group is open to hearing from all faculty and staff from the university and Wexner Medical Center during the review period. Those interested in reviewing these definitions are asked to fill out this Qualtrics survey by Friday, February 10 .
We use words like “student” and “employee” every day, but did you know that we don’t have standard definitions for these terms across the university and medical center? The Ohio State Data Governance team has launched a new initiative to standardize institutional definitions to increase clarity and accuracy in data reporting and analysis. As part of this effort, a team is facilitating the development of working groups, consisting of subject matter experts and data stewards, from across the university and medical center.
