Confidentiality

Collection of Information

As stated in our Univerity of Lethbridge Confidentiality of Student Records Policy, student information is classified in one of two categories either mandatory information or voluntary information.

Mandatory information is that information which the University believes to be essential to its proper function or which is required by law or regulation to be collected

Voluntary information is that information considered desirable but not essential to the functioning of the University.

Use of Personal Information

Private notes are occasionally kept regarding students by University employees. These notes are regarded as an extension of the staff or faculty member's memory and, as such, are private property.

All University employees are held accountable for the confidentiality and physical security of their personal records.
