Information Security

The Harvard Graduate School of Education is committed to protecting the information that is critical to teaching, research, and the University’s many varied activities, our business operation, and the communities we support, including students, faculty, staff members, and the public. These protections may be governed by legal, contractual, or University policy considerations.

Everyone at Harvard has a responsibility for proper handling and protection of confidential information as set out in Harvard's Enterprise Security Policy and HGSE's Written Information Security Plan. These policies apply to the entire Harvard and HGSE communities including faculty, staff, and students.

For questions about policy interpretation and application, contact HGSE's Information Security Officer, Sarah Pruski. For assistance with implementation steps or to find out about information security services that are offered at Harvard, contact the IT Service Center.

HGSE is equally committed to preserving an environment that encourages academic and research collaboration through the responsible use of information technology resources. Find out about Harvard’s research mission and the information security policies that protect research information.
