HR Workshops: The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
475 El Camino Real Department of Human Resources, Manresa Learning Center
What is the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and how does it affect faculty and staff? The intent of this updated presentation is to clarify FERPA rules and regulations as they pertain to students enrolled in post secondary institutions: what student information is protected and what information can be released. The newly released FERPA clarifications regarding campus safety, parental rights, and safeguarding privacy in relation to electronic data systems will be discussed. Additionally, we will discuss how student information is maintained and disseminated at SCU within the guidelines provided by FERPA.
