Abstract:
Higher education, like many large institutions, has integrated technology into many aspects of its daily operations. As a result, many policies and resultant enforcement procedures have been put into place. The question arises as to the privacy of the students' actions online. To what degree monitoring of the network is occurring is of great interest. In addition, what is happening outside the university in the law related to online privacy may provide a window into the level of privacy afforded to students utilizing the campus network. This exploratory case study attempts to integrate four perspectives on online privacy: the law, policy, administrative, and student perspectives. It is expected that over time, privacy online has decreased within the law and on campuses, while the interests of the state and university administrations have taken precedence over individual privacy online. In addition, it is expected that student and administrative perspectives will favor increased individual privacy online. The implications of this study are far reaching, as the area of privacy online is continuously emerging.
