Many states now support open data, or data that’s made freely available
without restriction in a nonproprietary, machine-readable format, to
increase government transparency, improve public accountability and
participation, and unlock opportunities for civic innovation. To date, 10
states have adopted open data policies, via executive order or legislation,
and 24 states have built open data portals.
*But while many agencies have joined the open data movement, state colleges
and universities have largely ignored this opportunity. To remedy this,
policymakers should consider how to extend open data policies to state
colleges and universities.​*
