The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) is provincial legislation that governs the university’s collection and use of personal information. Under FIPPA, university faculty and staff are prohibited from discussing, changing or divulging a student’s personal information (including grades, class attendance and information about course progress) with anyone other than the student.
Students are not able to give blanket permission for faculty or staff to share personal information with a parent or other third party with the exception of invoicing and account summary information (if proxy access has been given to the individual in LORIS).
Faculty and staff cannot share personal information about a student with anyone other than the student. This includes grades, attendance and student progress.
If you are concerned about your son or daughter’s health or safety, contact Laurier's Special Constable Service at 519.885.3333.
FIPPA allows for communication where there are serious concerns about a student’s health or safety, and a student’s permission is not required. Any disclosures to parents or other third parties will be handled through Laurier's Special Constable Service or Student Affairs.
FIPPA allows for communication with a family member if a student becomes ill or injured.
Laurier’s Notice of Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information outlines what information gathered by the university is considered to be publicly available. This includes the publication of graduates’ names, degrees earned, the sharing of information for fundraising, and the sharing of information with third parties.
