RE:            New FERPA Onboarding Training

The University of Cincinnati will introduce a Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) onboarding training program, offered through LawRoom, for all new staff, faculty, and student workers who come in contact with student's education and/or treatment records.

This new training will give all identified new hires a consistent foundation and enhanced awareness about their responsibility for protecting student privacy.

Identified new staff, faculty, and student workers will receive an email with a link to directions about how to access the required programs via LawRoom. Existing faculty and staff may request additional FERPA training by contacting Lorren Ratley ratleyln@ucmail.uc.edu
