Who Are Site Owners

Site Owners are designated individuals within each administrative department and/or school to maintain security, groups, and sites for their respective area.

It is usually recommended that two or three people are designated as Site Owners for each Site Collection. In order to become a Site Owner, an individual must have completed “SharePoint Owner” training/workshops, have prior experience as a SharePoint Site Owner, or display a thorough understanding of SharePoint permissions and concepts.
