Texas A&M University
A culture of privacy is central to the day-to-day function of the University. To help foster this culture of privacy, our office trains employees, contractors, and researchers to help ensure the privacy and safety of students, employees, patients, and all those whose lives are touched by Texas A&M University. We also conduct investigations when there have potentially been violations of relevant privacy laws and University rules and offer guidance to the University community to help ensure the privacy of those under our care.
