CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — The University of Virginia’s policies and procedures will be reviewed by a task force to ensure the personal information of students and staff is protected.

The move follows the accidental printing of address labels containing students’ Social Security numbers. The labels were on health insurance brochures sent to students by Aetna Health Care.

Media outlets report that U.Va. president Teresa Sullivan announced the task force’s creation Monday in a letter to students and staff.

The task force will be chaired by Pat Hogan, the university’s executive vice president and chief operating officer. Sullivan says the Office of General Counsel will serve in an advisory role.
