New Mexico Tech University accidentally sent an email with information on every student to all student, staff and faculty members at the university.

The university said the email was supposed to be about tutoring services, but instead contained an attached spreadsheet with basic information, like student addresses, email and phone numbers.

Officials at the university say the IT department there is deleting the emails, and say employees will receive more training to ensure a similar incident doesn't happen in the future.
