Is yours a surveillance campus?

Is yours a surveillance campus?

Reported by EdSurge, more than 40 colleges have made statements that they are not and won’t use facial recognition technology on their campuses. Whereas, many universities are actively utilizing facial recognition technology for meal payment, dorm security, and other privacy applications.

The privacy concerns and hyper-surveillance potential of the modern college campus and what that could mean for individual student liberty is causing many institutions to determine their technology position on this surveillance issue.

The takeaway? Will your institution value the benefits of facial ID recognition, or will you value being able to say “We’re facial ID-free” even more?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
