Welcome to COCC's Data Standards Manual

The Central Oregon Community College Data Standards Manual establishes common guidelines, rules, and policies for maintaining shared data items as well as ensuring accuracy and completeness of data within the integrated Banner database system. The manual assists in training new employees, serves as a reference for current employees and establishes an institutional culture of data stewardship.
