The Tennessee Open Records Act, T.C.A. § 10-7-503(a)(2)(A), allows any Tennessee resident the right to inspect or obtain copies of records or electronically stored data maintained by the University subject to some exceptions. All requests for records maintained by the University should be made to the University's Office of Legal Counsel.
Except for records made confidential by law, public records will be open for inspection during business hours (8:00 am - 4:30 pm). Requests to inspect records in person may be made in writing or verbally. Requests for copies of records must be made in writing. We request that you call to schedule a time to come to inspect any records. The form Request to Inspect/Copy Public Records is available to request inspection or duplication of records. Copying production charges and/or labor fees may be assessed if copies are requested. For convenience, requests and inquiries concerning requests may be submitted to email@example.com.
Persons requesting to inspect or obtain copies of records should be prepared to provide proof of Tennessee residency with a valid photo identification card including the person's address (i.e., driver's license).
