From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the North Carolina Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

1) An up-to-date report from the university's Education Advisory Board (EAB) system documenting undergraduate students' predicted risk scores, broken down in aggregate by the following categories:
- Race
- Gender
- Major
- GPA Group
- Race AND Gender
- Race AND Major
- Race AND Gender AND Major
- Race AND GPA group
- Race AND Gender AND GPA group

This data is stored in the university's EAB system as part of the Student Success Collaborative tool and can easily be searched and compiled into reports, as demonstrated by the attached example document provided by the University of Houston in response to a similar public records request for data from its EAB system. Please note that I am not requesting any personally identifying information, but rather aggregate data for the aforementioned groups.

2) All predictive model reports and threshold reports provided to the university by EAB as part of the Student Success Collaborative product.

I ask that all fees be waived as I am a journalist and I intend to use the requested records to publish articles in the public interest and not for any commercial purpose

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.
