This document outlines the ways that HEDS institutions agree to use and ensure the confidentiality of data shared through the consortium. Primary contacts at member institutions are responsible for signing the document and for ensuring that everyone at their institution is informed of and abides by it.
HEDS uses Box.com, a commercial web application that provides institutions a secure, password-protected, online storage repository for HEDS institutional data. This document gives instructions on how to set up your account and use Box.
The IRB letter from Wabash College collectively approves all HEDS surveys with exempt status.
Members of HEDS institutions use the HEDS listserv to post questions about institutional practices, make comments about events in higher education or their own campus, distribute job postings, and gather information from their colleagues in the consortium. We also distribute data files, information about upcoming events, and requests for feedback via the listserv. This document outlines the conventions that we ask people to observe when they use the listserv.
