Institutional Definitions

Institutional definitions are agreed upon as the definitions of record used when developing enterprise reports. All UW personnel responsible for producing enterprise reports should strive to incorporate the institutional definitions into those reports, and document when reports use definitions that are not aligned. You can explore a rich collection of business and technical terms in the UW's Knowledge Navigator (link opens in new tab).
