Public Records Request Resources

As an agency of the state of North Carolina, the University of North Carolina System Office is required to respond to requests for public records made under the North Carolina Public Records Act. Although the Office of the President, Communications, Human Resources, and Legal Affairs receive regular public records requests, other divisions receive them as well, and the responsibilities associated with receiving, gathering and reviewing documents, and ultimately responding to public records requests, applies across all divisions.


The UNC System believes in public transparency and providing access to open records and public documents.  Anyone may submit a public document request online.

Requesters for public document should review the  and submit detailed requests in writing through the UNC System Office public records portal. To minimize processing time, we encourage requesters to be as specific as possible in identifying the information being sought and during what period of time.
