  1. I am a new University Ombuds at North Dakota State University. We are an open records state. I'm am looking for information to support the arguments to protect the Ombudsperson's records, and to also discuss the "office of notice" issue visavis the Clery Act. I've found some information but am looking for more. Thanks!!
