Please complete the RSM Privacy Awareness Course – invitation on its way



Dear colleagues,

Look out for the invitation to the Privacy Awareness e-learning Course

You will soon receive an invitation for a Privacy Awareness Course. You should accept the invitation so you can become fully aware of the implications of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into force today, Friday 25 May.

Privacy is an important part of both our social responsibility and ethical standards in everything we do. Privacy furthers the existence of a free society and ensures academic freedom and free thinking. In line with our mission statement to be a force for positive change in the world, we need to ensure the privacy of our students and alumni, our faculty and staff members, our partners and any individuals whose data we process.

As a first step in this process, we want everyone to be aware of everything the new privacy regulation entails on a general level. Our new e-learning course is for everyone, and is accessible through Canvas. It will guarantee everyone has a basic understanding of GDPR.

In the next few days, you will receive an invitation from Canvas EUR ( to participate in the RSM Privacy Awareness Course that has been developed for you. Please complete this course as soon as possible, and before 1 September 2018.

For any further questions regarding the course, or privacy in general, please contact Jeroen Melein from the IMC department.

Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) is committed to promoting global social responsibility, sustainability and the highest ethical standards in research, education and in all services we provide to our stakeholders.

I am very happy to see RSM taking this important next step in social responsibility.

Best wishes,

Steef van de Velde

Dean RSM
