Records Management Mission Statement

The mission of Records Management is to provide a sound records management program to ensure the University retains the necessary information to meet legal, financial, administrative, research, and historical needs set forth in the State Records Act, for the orderly gathering and processing of University information in the most cost-effective manner.

The Records Management Program accomplishes this mission by:

  • saving records and all information necessary for the continued operation of the University
  • providing for the safety of stored records (in any media)
  • retaining no more records than necessary
  • retrieving stored records when needed
  • establishing effective filing systems
  • providing a cost-effective microfilming and imaging operation

Records Management follows the recommendations set forth by the State Records Act for the disposition of state records. These recommendations are found under Administration and Consulting.
