9. Use of Public Records and Affirmative Action Statements

The following rules of capitalization, punctuation, italics, and quotation marks apply ONLY to the use of titles of books, newspapers, magazines, musical and visual works, and other documents.

9.1 Public records statement

All email correspondence should have the following added after the signature block:

Email correspondence to and from this address may be subject to the North Carolina Public Records Law and shall be disclosed to third parties when required by statutes. (NCGS Ch. 132)


9.4 Affirmative action statement

Our official affirmative action statement reads as follows:

Durham Technical Community College is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity, ADA, Section 504 Institution and does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, age, religion, national origin, or disability.

This statement should appear on all official publications of the college.

Because of the length of the official statement, the following shortened statement may be used:

Durham Technical Community College is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity/Section 504/ADA Institution.

Questions regarding the use of these statements should be directed to the college’s Affirmative Action officer or to Marketing and Communications Department staff.
