Welcome to the Honors Think Tank on Transparency and Privacy, a collaboration between the University of Utah Honors College, the College of Law and the Marriott Library. Twelve honors students will spend a year taking a critical look at the rapidly evolving and often clashing paradigms of privacy and transparency, particularly as they impact government and individuals. By the end of the year students will have designed and completed both a privacy related and a transparency related project which will contribute to the ongoing policy discourse on these important societal issues and have a utility beyond the life of the course. Please follow the student’s progress on this web site and join in the conversation by posting your comments either here or on the project specific web sites.
