In the spring of 2022 EDUCAUSE surveyed 820 U.S. undergraduate students to better understand students’ experiences with institutional policies and practices around data privacy and security, how those experiences impact their trust in the institution, and what equity issues exist.
Learn about what students are experiencing, and get recommendations on how to translate the research into action at your institution.
Understanding Institutional Policies and Practices
Students are less informed about institutional policies than they are about privacy and security in general.
Students' lack of trust and confidence in their institutions’ data practices is becoming a persistent finding in EDUCAUSE research.
Equity in Privacy and Security
Data privacy and information security are equity issues. In the 2021 EDUCAUSE Horizon Report: Information Security Edition, student data privacy and governance was the highest-rated practice for supporting equity and inclusion.
