EDUCAUSE 2020 Student Technology Report subsection: Student Data Privacy

The 2020 Student Technology Report presents important results from EDUCAUSE’s 2020 research on students’ experience with information technology, which included 16,162 undergraduate students from 71 US institutions.  The section on Student Data Privacy is one of five areas of key findings (student success, technology use and environmental preferences, data privacy, online harassment, and accessibility).

“Students’ lack of understanding about how their institution uses personal data undermines both their trust in that use and their confidence in how their institution protects personal data.”
