U-M faculty, researchers, students and staff, across many fields, either face or address privacy issues in their work. Privacy@Michigan celebrates International Data Privacy Day, held every year on January 28, and aims to bring together faculty, researchers, students and staff from different colleges, schools and units across campus with the goal of sparking ongoing, multidisciplinary conversations about privacy's role in society — here at U-M and worldwide.
