Public Record Access
To provide efficient and consistent response to public records requests, the university has identified Whitney J. Fields, Executive Director of Institutional Risk & Emergency Management, as the administrator responsible for accepting, reviewing, and responding to all requests. Faculty and staff should not respond directly to requests from the public for university record access.
These requests often involve interpretation of the several laws and policies that govern the release of information. Regulations such as the California Public Records Act, the federal Freedom of Information Act, and the California Information Practices Act provide for public access to certain records, but at the same time provide exemptions for the protection of personal privacy. Only certain records, or portions of records, are publicly available, and inquiries must be specific and in writing.
Public records act requests should be directed immediately (within one business day of receipt) to:
Cal Poly Pomona
3801 W. Temple Avenue
Pomona, CA 91768
