Abstract

Responding to charges brought against an unnamed professor, this report is the product of an examination of universities using secret surveillance technology to police the institutions. The report urges forgoing with traditional limitations to privacy and instead respecting privacy campus-wide to protect the academic body from the stresses of covert surveillance.

Keywords: privacy, university, professor, surveillance
