Information and Privacy

Nipissing University respects the privacy of its students, faculty, staff, alumni and donors and will make every effort to protect the personal information that is collected, used or held by the University.

To ensure that all personal information is dealt with appropriately, Nipissing University will comply with its responsibilities under Ontario’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA). In addition to ensuring the protection of personal information, FIPPA also gives individuals the right to request access to University-held information. This information includes general records and records containing an individual’s own information.

The Office of the Vice-President, Finance & Administration, as delegated by the President and Vice-Chancellor, has primary responsibility for administering FIPPA. The Access & Privacy Officer can be reached in Room F313, via telephone at (705) 474-3450 ext. 4307, or via email at
