As the information age continues to develop and telecommunications capabilities continue to expand, information privacy can be threatened in many ways. University faculty members are in a unique position of influencing opinion. Additionally, records maintained by universities are, by their very nature and by law, private. Further, universities are experiencing an expanding role in providing access to information through the use of networking technologies. Students are exposed to dramatically increasing pressures to use and study technology and many of their fields of study incorporate practices for which information privacy is of paramount importance. Therefore, this study was undertaken to explore both the level of concern among faculty and students regarding information privacy issues and to identify factors associated with possible differences in those attitudes.
