HIPAA

The University of Northern Colorado is committed to protecting the personal, sensitive, and medical information of its patients, research subjects, students, and workforce. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) established a Privacy Compliance Program that UNC uses to promote information privacy awareness amongst the UNC community and to ensure that the university's workforce has the training and resources needed to protect private information, report privacy issues and concerns, and refer questions when additional guidance is needed.

Our website provides privacy educational tools and resources, clarifies frequently asked questions, and provides contact information to ask questions or report privacy concerns.
