Personal data of TWU students in Denton, Dallas and Houston exposed —12/22/06

DENTON, DALLAS, HOUSTON — Texas Woman’s University is notifying approximately 15,000 students that their personal data has been exposed to potential identity theft.

The personal data of all students who were enrolled at TWU in the calendar year 2005 was exposed. The personal data includes names, addresses and Social Security Numbers. This exposure affects the university’s three campuses in Denton, Dallas and Houston.

University officials discovered earlier this week that IRS 1098-T Tuition Statement data for 2005 was transmitted to an outside vendor via a non-secure connection. The data was briefly exposed only during transmission and is now secure.

At this time TWU has no indication that this data has been accessed or used by anyone. However, the university recognizes the seriousness of this exposure and the need to inform the affected students as quickly as possible.

TWU nursing professor receives grant to study nursing students and stress 7/27/06

Dr. Ann Malecha, associate professor of nursing at Texas Woman's University’s Institute of Health Sciences-Houston Center, has received a grant for her study titled “Preparing the Future Nursing Workforce: A Pilot Study Examining Stressors and Nursing Student Success.”

Forty TWU nursing faculty and nursing graduate students — 20 from Houston and 20 from Dallas— have volunteered to help conduct the study as part of the Nurses And Personal Stressors (NAPS) research team.

“The purpose of the study is to identify the type and extent of various stressors associated with nursing students’ academic and professional successes and failures,” Dr. Malecha said. “We hope to provide crucial data on the relationships between personal and interpersonal stressors and success in nursing school and, eventually, success on the job.”

Starting this fall, all TWU junior I nursing students on the Houston and Dallas campuses will be recruited to participate in this four-year study. The study will examine personal and interpersonal stressors, such as depression and verbal abuse, during the last two years of nursing school and then two years into their professional practice. Data will be compared between those participants who remain in the nursing program and those who leave the program, and will be collected whether or not they are employed post-graduation.
