Webinar | Privacy 101: How to Pursue Privacy by Design


Joe Gridley, Chief Data Privacy Officer, University of Maryland

Dan LoPresto, Director, Privacy Compliance & Data Protection Officer (DPO), University of Central Florida

Denise Nadasen, Asst. Vice President of Institutional Data & Analytics, Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU)

Joseph Potchanant Director, Cybersecurity and Privacy Program, EDUCAUSE

Data privacy is everyone’s job. Higher education institutions collect, store, use, transmit, disclose, and dispose of a wide variety of data every day. Concerns about ethics, privacy, and data protection have risen in conjunction with the emergence of new technologies, the vast amounts (and variety) of data at play in the higher education environment, and how those data are being used. In this session, data and privacy leaders will share strategies for moving their institutions toward privacy by design.

NPA SmartSkills: What Comes Next? Career & Life Choices After Your Postdoc


Peter Loge, M.A., M.S., associate professor of media and public affairs; associate director, School of Media and Public Affairs, The George Washington University; strategic consultant

Being a postdoc, and eventually a postdoc alum, is only one part of who you are. Building a career is only one part of building a life. Making the right choices headed into your first permanent position, while balancing work and life demands, can be difficult. Peter Loge, whose career includes serving in senior staff positions in Congress and the Obama administration, writing a book explaining how soccer can make people better managers, and advising organizations ranging from American Farmland Trust and America's Funniest Home Videos to and the World Wildlife Fund, will lead a conversation about how to build and balance your life and career.

As in 2022, the NPA will offer certificates of completion to postdocs that attend 10 out of 12 SmartSkills sessions live in 2023.

Concept Outlines at NSF

Tuesday, September 27, 2022

2:00pm-3:00pm EST

There is no cost to participate.

Topics Discussed:

As part of the draft Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (23-1), NSF is elevating the Concept Outline as a new submission type. The primary purpose of the Concept Outline is to ensure that the concept being proposed by the prospective Principal Investigator (PI) is appropriate for the proposal type or funding opportunity, and to help reduce the administrative burden associated with the submission of a full proposal.

Attendees also will learn about the Program Suitability and Proposal Concept (ProSPCT) tool which will be used for submitting and tracking Concept Outlines.

To register for this event, visit NSF's Policy Outreach resource.

For those who cannot attend the live webinar, a recorded session will be available on-demand shortly after the event and posted in our Resource Center.

If you require any accommodations, such as closed captioning, or if you have any logistical questions about the webinar, please email us.
