The university was made aware of the situation Oct. 4 after one of the
individuals on the list discovered it and alerted university officials,
according to university spokesperson Michael Kirk.
"Once the university became aware of this, the information was removed
from the Internet," Kirk said.
The list was "inadvertently" made public on the Web by a faculty member
who had saved a class list of one-time students that was able to be
viewed online, according to Kirk.
The 23 students whose names and Social Security numbers were on the list
were enrolled in the class in 2000. The university sent letters to each
individual offering two years of credit protection through Debix, an
identity protection company, at the university's expense.
