How To Protect Students' Privacy And Keep Your Campus Safe
Tuesday, January 31 ~ 3:00-4:30pm EST
Get more information from the recent FERPA webinar on Registrar's Office website.
As a result of participating in this training you will solidify what you need to know about current FERPA regulations and to understand what you need to know to continue to protect your students’ privacy while providing for a safe classroom environment.
Faculty need to protect student privacy while still playing a part in the prevention of threats to campus safety. However, this is difficult to do and we are reminded of this by the stories that are currently making headline news. What does FERPA really mean for faculty members? What can a faculty member do to prepare?
As a result of attending this FERPA Training for Faculty webinar you will be up to date regarding FERPA law as it applies specifically to your role as a faculty member. Participants will be able to pose real life scenarios to the presenter during the presentation. Join us to learn what you need to know about current FERPA regulations so that you can continue to protect your students’ privacy while providing a safe classroom environment.
Learn FERPA basics as they relate to the role of the faculty member
Understand new FERPA regulations pertinent to the faculty role
Explore what needs to be reported or not, as it relates to protecting the safety of the student and the institution
Participants will have the opportunity to present real life FERPA scenarios and questions they face as a faculty member and will leave the presentation knowing how to respond to issues as they arise
Who is the speaker?
Helen B. Garrett is currently the Executive Dean of Student Affairs at Lane Community College, Eugene, Oregon. She is probably one of the few people in America who wanted to be a registrar when she grew up and she started by earning her Bachelors of Business Administration and Masters of Education, College and University Administration both from Michigan State University. She worked as a road runner college admissions recruiter for the University of Southern California, moved progressively up through admissions at Whittier College (CA) and the University of Oregon and became the Director of Enrollment Services/Registrar at Lane Community College in 2000. She loves to present FERPA and has done so nationally with the American Association of Collegiate and Registrars Officers (AACRAO), regionally with PACRAO and in Oregon with OrACRAO. She is currently the President of PACRAO and is proud when she is called by her trainees as the “FERPA Princess”.
