    Like many institutions, Coppin State University entrusted data access to select individuals (e.g., administrators, institutional researchers, program coordinators). President Maria Thompson recognized that a genuine, campus-wide appreciation of data required transparency and accessibility for all faculty and staff. This forged the movement of data democratization, a process of expanding data and the tools to analyze it to a broader audience than traditionally has had access. In other words, data that was “once available to only a select few is now available to everyone” in the organization.
