Indiana University exposes sensitive student data

Jurgita Lapienytė reports:

Each year, hundreds of institutions across the US and Canada ask their first-year, transfer, and older students to participate in a survey about their prior academic and co-curricular experiences. They also ask them to share their expectations from the coming year.

The survey isn’t anonymous – students are asked to enter their full names and student card numbers. What’s more, participants are asked to specify where they’re going to live during their studies, their sexual orientation, race, and ethnicity. Some of the questions are designed to learn about the psychological well-being of the students.
