The Data Governance Task Force completed its work in May 2021. Data governance will continue at John Carroll University in a different format. More information to come!

You can still contact the group with questions by emailing

The initial task of the Task Force is to inventory and map existing data, to define current data processes and procedures, and to establish and define different campus roles related to data. Once these tasks are completed, the Task Force will address strategic issues within these broad domains: data quality; data availability; data retention; and data security & privacy.

More information about the Task Force’s purpose, responsibilities, and structure can be found in the charter.

The Task Force has a two-tiered structure.  Key data owners and reporters form the voting membership:

  • Maria O’Connor (chair; Director of Institutional Research)
  • Lisa Brown Cornelius (Senior Director, Office of Residence Life)
  • Todd Bruce (Assistant Provost for Institutional Effectiveness & Assessment)
  • Jennifer Dillon (Director of Budget and Financial Analysis)
  • Michelle Reynard (Registrar)
  • Jen Rick (Assistant Vice President for Human Resources)
  • Sarah Starr Zechman (Executive Director of Advancement Services)
  • John Sully (Associate Chief Information Officer)
  • Steve Vitatoe (Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Operations & Analytics)
  • Claudia Wenzel (Assistant Vice President for Student Enrollment & Financial Services)

Additional non-voting members will be brought in as needed when the Task Force begins to expand its work across campus.
