Our Commitment to Transparency
A guide to accessing public records at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
As a public institution in North Carolina, the University is subject to the laws and policies of the federal government, the State of North Carolina, and the University of North Carolina system.
We respond as promptly as possible to public records requests while protecting the privacy rights of our students and employees, as well as other information that is confidential under federal and state laws.
We created this website to make it easy to request public records and to see how the University’s Public Records Office responds.
