We are committed to protecting the privacy and integrity of data collected, created, stored and transmitted by the University.

We believe it is important that all individuals who collect, use, store, or process personal information on behalf of the university will have a good understanding of the governing privacy laws and regulations. Therefore, we offer various resources to help the GW Community learn about privacy.

Privacy, data management and records management Training and Workshops are scheduled throughout the year.  These sessions (listed below) are open to all faculty, staff and students and aim at helping the GW community become more fluent in privacy principles, regulations and policies, as well as best practices for managing and protecting university data and records.
