Privacy, access to information, and data governance are integral to business, technology, and government — so we encourage the participation of business administration, law, public policy, government administration, health sciences, computer science, human resources, and journalism students.
To qualify for student membership you must be under 25, enrolled full time in a program that leads to an associate, baccalaureate, graduate, or post-graduate degree, and not employed in a privacy/access or compliance-related role. We may contact you for proof of student status.
