Multi Request Institutional Press Policies
Est. Completion None
No Responsive Documents


From: Anne Marie Tamburro

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the North Dakota Open Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

1. Any policy, guidance, handbook, manual, or standard contract concerning the institution’s interactions or relationship with members of the news media, reporters, or journalists, including student journalists.

2. Any policy, guidance, handbook, or manual concerning the interactions or communications of institutional employees, including faculty, administrators, staff, and student employees, with the news media, reporters, or journalists, including student journalists.

Please note that this request does not seek a search of faculty or student email accounts or records. These requests should in no way be construed to include a review or search of email accounts, websites, or other forms of data or document retention which are controlled by students, alumni, or faculty members, nor by governmental or advisory bodies controlled by the same, except insofar as any such individuals also serve in an administrative capacity and the records were created or are held by the individual in that capacity. Any search should be limited to documents held by the administration and/or its staff members, including records created or maintained by persons acting in the capacity of administrators or staff members.

This request is made on behalf of the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression, a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization that aims to defend and sustain the individual rights of all Americans to free speech and free thought. This request concerns a matter of public interest. The records are sought for the purpose of researching and educating the public about policies affecting student journalists' ability to engage in news gathering and reporting on college and university campuses.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days.

Hi Anne Marie. Your follow-up request through the U.S. mail just came across my desk. I never saw the original. This request is a bit out of my wheel-house but I'll talk to the people who can help me with it and try to have something back to you soon.

I'm not sure what happened. I remember replying on or about June 29th, and just became aware that my response obviously didn't go through. I chatted with our Public Information employees. They looked for any specific guidance or rules from our governing agencies related to the question that is the subject of your request. they were unable to locate anything specific except for the policies and procedures related to Open Records requests that you are already aware of. Please don't hesitate to contact me directly at 701-858-3321 if I've mis-interpreted the question or if you need further clarification.

Vice President for Administration and Finance,
