Balancing data insights with data governance, privacy and transparency

The Initiated in campus technology podcast explores current trends and issues affecting technology leaders in higher education. Hear editor-in-chief Rhea Kelly chat with edtech experts and practitioners about their work, insights, and experiences.

Ravi Pendse is passionate about data privacy. As vice president of information technology and chief information officer at the University of Michigan, he worked to ensure that privacy was part of every technology decision on campus. At the same time, it is committed to fostering a strong data culture that democratizes the use of data to inform decision-making. Central to this culture is transparency: making sure students, faculty, and staff know exactly what types of data are collected and how that data is stored, accessed, managed, and shared. In this episode of the podcast, we talk about building a data and privacy-aware ecosystem, data governance challenges, data visibility for students, and more.
