EFF Director of Investigations Dave Maass and former EFF research student Hailey Rodis are joining the Education Writers Association, one of the largest organizations for journalists covering academic matters, for its fall Higher Education Seminar.

In the panel, "Covering Campus Safety," reporters will get story ideas and investigation tips from researchers who have covered data around campus police . They will also learn how to dig out police surveillance data and how to examine a university police force’s demographics.

Maass and Rodis will discuss their report, "Scholars Under Surveillance: How Campus Police Use High Tech to Spy on Students," part of the Atlas of Surveillance project. Participants will also hear from researchers with CalMatters.
