Due to increasing sensitivity to privacy concerns, UNC is committed to protecting and safeguarding the confidentiality of student, faculty and staff information. The information currently included by default in the UNC directory reflects this commitment. This default standard applies University-wide. Any directory created and maintained and made accessible to the public must adhere to this standard.

Only the following information for students, faculty and/or staff may be included by default in a publicly accessible directory created, maintained and/or used for any purpose at UNC:

  • Name
  • University email
  • Employee information
    • Position
    • Title
    • Department
  • Student information
    • Degree
    • Major
    • Minor
    • School
  • Faculty and staff business address
    • Business address
    • Second business address
  • Faculty and staff business phone
    • Business
    • Business alternative
    • Fax
    • Pager

No other information may be included by default. All other information about a student, faculty or staff member is by default private.

A decision to include any other information in the publicly accessible UNC directory or any other publicly accessible directory at UNC rests exclusively with the individual. The individual may choose to set several directory fields as either public or private. To exercise this personal option in the UNC Campus Directory, the individual must go to his or her own UNC directory information via http://connectcarolina.unc.edu/ and manually change the default settings.

Departments and campus organizations are responsible for managing their own directories.
