UK apologizes after personal student info emailed to hundreds

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, KY (WAVE) – Personal information about some University of Kentucky students was accidentally emailed to 600 other students, prompting the school to issue an apology.

A university employee mistakenly sent the mass email on Wednesday. It listed the names of students with disabilities and their accommodations.

UK released a statement on Thursday saying the mistake was "realized immediately" and that efforts were made to recall the email.

UK Vice President for Student Affairs Robert Mock said in the statement that no other private information was included in the email.

He said the university is reviewing internal procedures in an effort to prevent future mistakes of this nature.
