On November 13, CEHV Director Don Hubin organized and led a panel discussion on the ethical use of big data and predictive analytics at the annual conference of the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU). The conference, the 130th in the organization's history, brings together presidents, provosts, and other top administrators from 237 public research universities, land-grant institutions, and state university systems.
 
The panel discussion, "The Ethical Use of Data: Still More Questions than Answers," featured Iris Palmer (Senior Policy Analyst for the New America), Alan Rubel (Associate Professor, Information School; Director, Center for Law, Society & Justice, University of Wisconsin, Madison), and Julie Carpenter-Hubin (Assistant Vice President, Office of Academic Affairs, Office of Institutional Research & Planning, The Ohio State University). The panel discussed the significant potential benefits of using advanced predictive analytics on the data universities hold on students, staff, and faculty, as well as the very real risks posed by such uses.
