It is my pleasure to announce that effective September 1, Augie Freda will be transitioning to a new role as Director of Information Governance for University Relations. In this role, Augie will continue reporting to me and outline guidelines as they relate to the effective and strategic use of Notre Dame biographical data in alumni, parent, and friend engagement. In addition, Augie will retain the role and responsibility of the University Relations Data Steward. Working closely with Donor Services, Annual Giving, the NDAA, and DIS, Augie will work to ensure the completeness of biographical data such as field of work, email addresses, and phone numbers, as well as the division’s adherence to information governance guidelines and best practices as we explore data means across the university. In this role, Augie will serve as the liaison to OIT, Controller’s Group, and AAS as their processes relate to information governance.
Along with Brad Goff, Augie will co chair the division’s newly formed University Relations Data Governance Committee, with a particular focus on data definitions and how they may interface with data across campus. Augie will transition to Grace Hall where he will focus efforts on the Enterprise Information Management Project led by Annual Giving and a Data Integrity project in partnership with Donor Services.
For over a decade, Augie has effectively led the Department of Research. Prior to this role, Augie served as Director of Corporate Relations. Augie is a loyal son of Notre Dame, and received the Presidential Award for Leadership two years ago.
Please join me in congratulating Augie on this new role!
