What to Do If You Get a Request for Public Records

Faculty or staff who receive a request for public records under the Colorado Open Records Act should refer the requestor to the university's policies and procedures for those requests, which are available here.

Reminder to Faculty, Staff, Students Who Conduct Research

It's the policy of the University of Northern Colorado that research involving human subjects must be approved by the Institutional Review Board (see University Regulation 3-8-104). This policy applies to UNC faculty, students and staff. The major responsibility for maintaining ethical standards and protecting human rights rests with individual researchers and research advisors.

The Institutional Review Board offers an added measure of assurance and serves as a local resource for the interpretation of ethical guidelines. You can read more about UNC policy governing research with human beings at http://www.unco.edu/osp/doc/irb/Procedures.pdf.

Phishing: Don't Take the Bait

The university often sees an increase in phishing attempts at the beginning of the semester. A phishing attempt will arrive as an email with some sort of "bait" content to entice users into clicking on a link or giving out personal details.

Some phishing emails can be identified by suspicious links, incorrect grammar, poor spelling or a request for personal information that weren't expecting.

If you suspect that you've received such an email, please report by forwarding it to the Technical Support Center at help@unco.edu.

More information about phishing is available here.
