Data Standards

Data Standards Committee

The Mission of the Data Standards Committee is to protect the integrity of University of Detroit Mercy data housed in the Banner Information System and other systems which interface with Banner. The Data Standards Manual details the established standards for the protection, access, and use of Detroit Mercy data. These Standards are expected to be followed by all who use Banner or any system that interface with Banner. Divisions/departments may have individual guidelines that supplement, but do not replace or supersede these guidelines.

The Data Standards Committee is comprised of members of the Detroit Mercy Community who come together to set standards. These standards are determined through consensus of all constituents involved to find solutions that work for Detroit Mercy coupled with best practices established by peer institutions.
