Ethics and Legal Issues In Advising Community

Academic advising has only recently been recognized as a career path, and with this label has brought legal and ethical issues. Handling sensitive and private data raises the same questions about security that other industries deal with such as banks by handling customer’s funds. New laws and regulations such as FERPA evolve and change over time so the advising community must keep current in order to provide students with the best possible service and data protection.

This community is a place where these issues are shared and new and developing issues can be brought to the awareness of its members.
