- I receive a phone call or letter from a lawyer wanting to discuss the University or a University matter?
- I'm sued in connection with my work for the University?
- I receive a request for University documents from a member of the public or member of the press?
- A government agency representative calls, knocks on my door, or otherwise notifies me that they will be on campus?
- I receive a request for a student’s education records? Do I have the authority to access these files and forward them to a third party?
