    I am somewhat concerned by the word “never” shared without some context. I have interacted with many faculty and staff over the years who have taken similar guidance to be just that, “never.” There is often a need to share information if the people involved in the discussion have an educational need to know. Other exceptions include emergency situations, signing of a release, etc. I would be glad to discuss this with you.
