FERPA Workshop
Fri , 10/12
10 :15-11:30
Kirby Ballroom
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is the federal regulation that governs student educational records. The law guarantees students access to their educational records and provides guidelines regarding the release of and access to those records by others. Why doesn’t the university send grades to the parents when they are the ones paying the bills? Shouldn’t the college inform the parents if a student is ill? This session will explore the complex federal and state laws that address privacy of student records. The laws are often confusing, and requests for student data sometimes appear legitimate when they are not. There will be time for Q&A.

Facilitator: Tina M.R. Falkner is the Associate Registrar and Chief Privacy Officer for Academic Support Resources at the University of Minnesota and is the key-contact university-wide for student data privacy issues.
