Statement on DTH Media Corp., et al. v. UNC-Chapel Hill

“We are pleased with Judge Baddour’s decision. The University has a legal and ethical responsibility to protect the privacy rights and educational records of all students. The ruling allows us to continue to uphold that responsibility and protects the identity of the reporting parties who put their trust in the University’s process. Our position is directed by federal privacy law (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, or FERPA) and informed by the experiences of reporting parties, witnesses, investigators, and counselors.”
