Privacy is an inherently interdisciplinary research topic that touches many areas at U-M. Faculty, researchers, students and staff face and address privacy considerations in their work, studies, and life at U-M. Privacy@Michigan aims to bring together community members from different colleges, schools and units across the university with the goal of sparking ongoing, multidisciplinary conversations about privacy's role in society — here at U-M and worldwide.
