In June of 2010, former UC President Mark Yudof convened the University of California Privacy and Information Security Steering Committee to perform a comprehensive review of the university’s current privacy and information security policy framework and to make recommendations about how the university should address near-term policy issues and longer-term governance issues related to privacy and information security. The committee consisted of a broad cross section of functional areas within the university and included representation from faculty, staff and students.

The committee’s final report, released January 2013, includes a UC Statement of Privacy Values and Privacy Principles, several recommendations and an implementation timeline. The final report was endorsed by President Yudof in July 2013, the Academic Council in November 2013 and was presented to the Board of Regents at their July 2013 meeting.


Implementation efforts are underway as led by Senior Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer Sheryl Vacca.
