  • Employ daily work habits that protect the security and privacy of information you have access to in the conduct of your responsibilities
  • Adhere to university policies and procedures regarding protecting student education records as directed under FERPA
  • Report any suspected violations of policies and procedures to your supervisor
  • Seek assistance from your supervisor or individuals listed on the contact list if you are unsure of how to manage a situation or need clarification
