Data Administration

The Office of Data Administration manages data as a University resource so members of the Penn community have the information they need, when they need it, and in the form in which they need it to do their jobs. The objectives of Data Administration are to improve the quality, security, ease of access, and reduce the redundancy of the data. Specific functions of the Office of Data Administration focus on data architecture as a framework for decision making, the creation of a common language of standards, the arbitration and negotiation of agreements, and a commitment to education and advocacy.



Data Warehouse : The Warehouse allows faculty, staff, experienced system developers, and institutional researchers to perform direct queries on administrative University data.

Penn Community : PENN Community provides biographic, demographic and affiliation information about people who are part of the University community.
