The Oregonian editorial board has an editorial that anyone concerned about student privacy should read. It begins:

The University of Oregon claims it was only trying to clarify the privacy policy of its counseling center when it rewrote guidelines describing exceptions to confidentiality for students who seek help.

It clarified it, all right – that is, if the message university officials want to broadcast is meant to discourage students from ever seeking help from anyone at the University Counseling and Testing Center. As The Oregonian/OregonLive’s Richard Read reported, the policy’s new language deletes some of the bold-faced assurances of confidentiality and instead lists more reasons the center may give up students’ therapy-related information — as well as a warning that the list is not exhaustive.
