Statement of Understandings

The HEDS Statement of Understandings captures the reasons and rules for how we share data, knowledge, and expertise. All HEDS member institutions agree to abide by the Statement of Understandings to ensure the confidentiality of data shared through the consortium.

The Statement has two components: the Principles & Values Statement, which captures the reasons for how and why we share data, knowledge, and expertise; and an Operative Statement, which provides specific guidance and details about sharing for the current set of information and resources available to HEDS members.
