How to protect, analyze, and act on the information you have
Colleges nationwide are increasingly looking to harness data — especially on their students — to make strategic and cost-effective decisions.

But colleges must weigh their ability to know more than ever about their students against potential ethical missteps and privacy risks. And they must figure out which data are useful in the first place. Student data collected or used unwisely can do more harm than good.
