With a recent spike in highly-publicized collegiate tragedies attributed to mental illness, increased attention is being paid to deficiencies in psychological and counseling services universities offer. State incidents, including the campus massacre of 32 Virginia Tech students in 2007 and the number of suicides which occur every year, have increased pressure on Virginia schools to both meet and monitor the mental health of young adults.

Social media and technology researcher Danah Boyd likes to tell this story as an illustration of the power of mass data gathering:

A couple of years ago, a 16-year-old Minneapolis girl received a mailing advertisement from Target. The ad congratulated her on her pregnancy and suggested she buy some infant care products.

The girl’s father was incensed and chewed out the manager of a local Target store. A few days later, the father called the manager to apologize — his daughter was pregnant, and Target’s corporate marketers and statisticians had found...
