Confidentiality of Alumni and Donor Information

Our alumni and donors' right to privacy is paramount. The University of Louisiana at Lafayette and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Foundation are committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of information concerning our alumni and friends. We follow all CASE, applicable federal and state laws and regulations as well as University of Louisiana policies governing the collection, use, maintenance and dissemination of information. For this reason, we do not release lists containing personal data. We do, however, provide analysis of such data and work to find solutions for how the data can be used to benefit the University.
