CONFIDENTIALITY, PRIVACY AND SAFETY: FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT (FERPA) Campus officials are regularly asked to balance the interests of both SAFETY and PRIVACY for individual students. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) helps to protect privacy by requiring institutions to ask for written consent before disclosing a students personally identifiable information.However, it also allows colleges and universities to take key steps to maintain campus safety. FERPA is not a confidentiality law so much as it is a records privacy law.Sensitive information should still be shared carefully and appropriately, but it need not be withheld from others simply because it concerns a student.
