By Christine R. Williams

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), and the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) are a few of the avenues by which Congress has sought to strike a balance between the competing interests in privacy and access to information. This monograph provides readers with a basic understanding of each of these laws and identifies the various areas on campus that each impacts. It discusses the laws' similarities and differences as they relate to the privacy and security of the people and information they are intended to protect; and includes a comprehensive side-by-side chart comparing their respective breadth and scope of coverage. The last section focuses on various obstacles to compliance, and presents hypothetical situations that administrators and campus counsel may encounter related to FERPA, HIPAA, and GLBA. This monograph can serve as a valuable resource for campus counsel to use in conducting training programs on their campus relating to any of these laws. 2007. 48 pp.
