A Discussion About the NSA and Government Surveillance

To mark Data Privacy Month, the University of Pennsylvania and the National Constitution Center hosted a Town Hall program with some of the nation's leading experts on privacy and surveillance. On February 3, 2014, Peter Swire of the White House NSA Review Board, Anita Allen of the University of Pennsylvania, and Charlie Savage of the New York Times joined Constitution Center's Jeffrey Rosen to discuss the NSA and government surveillance past and future. University of Pennsylvania faculty, staff, and students, as well as members of the public, were invited to participate in this free event.

If you could not attend the discussion in person, a video recording is now publicly available. Please fee free to share this resource on your campus in order to continue the privacy dialog with your colleagues.


This event was coordinated by the University of Pennsylvania's Maura Johnston (University Privacy Officer) and Lauren Steinfeld (Senior Advisor for Privacy and Compliance).
