Student Data Privacy Bill of Rights
The SBHE passed policy 503.2 Student Data Privacy Bill of Rights on May 29, 2020. The policy states in summary: The SBHE, the NDUS, and NDUS institutions are committed to responsibly collecting, storing, and using the PPII of students, while protecting student PII from unauthorized access or disclosure. This Policy reflects the reality that students are the owners of their PII and should control access to and distribution of their PII to the greatest extent possible, yet many NDUS programs and technologies require student PII to function for the students’ benefit. This Policy outlines student rights related to the privacy and security of their educational and personal data.
