Policy for Processing University Subpoenas

In order to protect employees' and students' privacy rights, any subpoena received for the production or release of University documents shall be forwarded immediately upon receipt to the Vice President for Administrative Services Office. The Vice President for Administrative Services Office shall secure validation of the subpoena from the University legal counsel and send an informational copy of the subpoena to the appropriate Vice President. Once this has been completed, legal counsel validates the subpoena and the Vice President for Administrative Services Office will communicate approval to the originating entity. The request can then be fulfilled.

In addition, any subpoenas received involving testimony or appearance in court in cases in which the university is involved, directly or indirectly, shall be forwarded immediately upon receipt to the Vice President for Administrative Services Office.
