Our community thrives on the sharing of ideas and resources that promote the growth, development, and advancement of Data Governance practices in Higher Education. Our members draw from 2-4 year public and private institutions both domestic and abroad. Although the majority of our memberships consist of academic institutions, we also have members from state systems and professional organizations, companies, and facilities. Since our inception, we have grown to an organization of 300+ members across 8 countries.
The HEDGe Steering Committee is made up of 12 members serving 6 basic functions. Each member will serve a 2-year term. Additional information about Steering Committee functions can be found in the charter linked below.
