HEPC 2012 - Privacy and data sharing in higher education: Open your data, not Pandora's Box

Data are an increasingly critical resource to help students succeed in college and for policymakers as they work to enable that success. With data usage comes responsibility: data must be used in appropriate ways. Speaking on behalf of the U.S. Department of Education, Kathleen Styles will explore the evolving nature of privacy and what that means for data usage. She will also provide an update on the most recent Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations and the impact on postsecondary data and
date sharing agreements between education sectors and, potentially, labor.

Speaker:
Kathleen Styles, Chief Privacy Officer, U.S. Department of Education

Moderator:
Hans Peter L'Orange, Vice President for Research and Information Resources
State Higher Education Executive Officers
