Can You Be Trusted? How Students Perceive College Use of Personal Data

As students return to campus in greater numbers, some institutions have begun monitoring their behavior via location and social media tracking in the name of health and safety — often without the students being aware of what's going on. A recent joint project by New America and NASPA, an organization of student affairs administrators in higher education, held a series of discussions with students to understand what they know about and feel about the use of such data by their schools. The findings were shared in the recently published report, "Keeping Student Trust." In this session, co-author Iris Palmer discusses highlights from the report and offers recommendations for campus leaders, to guide their thinking about the collection and use of personal data while still maintaining student trust.
