The CSUMB Data Glossary aims to provide meaning and context to our campus data. This would not be possible without close collaboration and expert knowledge of multiple departments and individuals from across the campus who are most familiar with individual data elements--"data owners"--who periodically review and update content in this glossary, in collaboration with IAR, to ensure it accurately reflects current business processes.

Thank you to all of our campus partners who help to make the CSUMB Data Glossary a resource that supports campus-wide, data-informed decision-making.

This glossary provides:

  • Definitions of terms
  • Example values and / or example scenarios in which the terms are used
  • Source documentation
  • The reports / dashboards terms can be found on
  • Metadata on the terms, including: data owner on campus, source system information including table and field names, logical transformations / calculations performed, and OBIEE column and field names.
