U-M faculty and researchers across many fields either face or address privacy challenges and issues in their work. This event in celebration of the International Data Privacy Day brings together faculty, researchers, students and staff from different colleges, schools and units across campus and aims to spark on-going, multidisciplinary conversations about privacy’s role in society – here at U-M and worldwide.

The Privacy@Michigan event is free of charge and open to the public. RSVP to attend.
