UK Apologies for Mass Email Containing Personal Info
The University of Kentucky is apologizing after an employee accident sent a mass email with personal information about some students. WKYT-TV reports the email was sent on Wednesday to 600 students and listed the names of students with disabilities and their accommodations.
UK released a statement on Thursday saying the mistake was "realized immediately" and efforts were made to recall the email.
UK Vice President for Student Affairs Robert Mock said in the statement that no other private information, such as social security numbers, was included in the email. He says the university is reviewing internal procedures in an effort to prevent a similar occurrence.
