Privacy & Compliance Awareness

Welcome to WIU Privacy & Compliance Awareness

Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.

- James Thurber

Privacy & Compliance Awareness is a regular channel for the communication of privacy, compliance, security and governance related information for the University community. The goal is to share what is going on in the University, community, state, nation and the world that may affect the University community or help in our shared goal to be informed and better citizens of the world.
