SPPO: The Student Privacy Policy Office (SPPO) is the office within the Department of Education that is responsible for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Students may file a complaint with the SPPO if they believe their rights under FERPA have been violated. The complaints typically are centered around the right to view and inspect records or the exposure of personally identifiable information without consent. The SPPO reviews and responds to each complaint filed, either by dismissing the complaint, providing the institution named in the complaint informal assistance with FERPA compliance, or a more formal investigation of the institution’s compliance with the law. For more information regarding Duke University policy and procedures under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), please visit: https://registrar.duke.edu/student-records-resources/ferpa
