Join us for an online training that will provide faculty with critical information about FERPA, the federal statute that governs nearly all student records. Starting from an overview of the FERPA framework, we will address issues that faculty commonly face — often without realizing the FERPA implications and risks — including:

  • Posting grades
  • Emailing with, and about, students
  • Recommendation letters
  • Use of online tools and collaborative pedagogies
  • Talking with (helicopter) parents
  • Administrator requests for student information

If you are looking for relevant scenarios and practical tips to better understand how FERPA applies to the everyday work of faculty, this online training will help.

Educating Faculty Is Critical

Violating FERPA policies can have serious consequences for your institution. Take the necessary steps to educate your faculty—who have regular access to student educational records—to be FERPA compliant. This online training will most appeal to the following stakeholders:

  • Registrars
  • Faculty
  • Faculty developers
  • Academic leaders: department chairs and deans
  • Legal counsel
