Records Management

The University is required to adhere to state laws and regulations for the management of its state records. All university records, including copies and regardless of medium, created by or received by an office or employee in connection with the normal course of business are considered state records. Certain inactive records are retained to meet legal and fiscal requirements or future administrative needs, or because of historical significance. Department heads are responsible for the management of their department's records, including the records of all staff and faculty within their departments. In managing their records, they should adhere to the following guidelines.
