This subject is governed both by federal law, which protects the confidentiality of student records, and by state law, which guarantees public access to records. To respond to requests for access to records without violating either law, the University has provided the appointment and training of a Deputy Custodian of Records for every office in the University and the designation of some Deputy Custodians as single University-wide access points for certain sensitive classes of records.
A University employee to whom a request is made for access to University records or to information possessed by the University should respond as follows:
Each university office will display a sign naming the Deputy Custodians of its records and containing other information for persons seeking access to public records. This sign will be provided by the Legal Custodian of University Records as part of the training of a Deputy Custodian for each office.
