Full Disclosure: New and Responsible Attitudes.
Arnold, Joanne E.
Broad influences impinge upon the question of "full disclosure," a question that asks what information about the conduct of public affairs should be made available to the public. Increasingly, state laws require the disclosure of all information about the conduct of public business, the receipt and expenditure of public funds, and the outcomes of public programs to any person who seeks such information. Legal requirements are making pledges of confidentiality more difficult to keep. Records are becoming more easily available to those who are the subjects of such records, although such personal records are becoming less subject to public scrutiny. The implications for institutions of higher education are many. Among them are the necessity of developing guidelines for the collection, storage, and dissemination of information and advisability of adopting a common language and standard definitions and procedures for reporting institutional information.
