Harvard University has raised privacy concerns among teachers and students after divulging Tuesday that it had photographed approximately 2,000 students in the Spring without seeking their consent or informing them afterwards.
Harvard was taking pictures of students in 10 lecture halls as part of a study regarding class attendance. Harvard president Drew Faust has ordered a review of the incident and said she takes the matter “very seriously,” according to The Boston Globe.
Harvard was at the center of controversy regarding privacy last year after it was discovered that officials had gone through junior faculty members’ emails.
