This document re-imagines the higher education institution as a small municipality in and of itself while also exploring some datasets that would be unique to higher education. The goal is to create a program that would make machine-readable data about the institution “open” and freely accessible by the public. The document splits data that would be included into an academic Open Data portal into two categories: administrative and research.
