Events and trends over the past few years have heightened awareness of problems arising from identity theft and related misuse of personal information. Commonplace availability of key personal information such as Social Security Number (SSN) and the absence of strong measures for protecting privacy have contributed to identity theft with disastrous ramifications for the victims. To help protect our faculty and staff, the university issues a unique numeric identifier to each employee that is used to conduct university business.
The unique identifier is a nine (9) digit number beginning with 95, and we call it the UO ID.
More detailed information about the UO ID is available at http://bg.uoregon.edu/node/959
