Employee Responsibility for management of university records

What is my role & responsibility for University records as an employee?

Information technology has effectively made all of us records managers. The University Records Management Advisory Group and the University Archives and Records Management are concerned that all University employees recognize and understand the obligation they have to create, maintain, dispose of, and preserve records.

A very important part of your job is the management of records and information that is related to your job responsibilities. As part of your University employment, you are provided a number of workplace tools and institutional resources. A number of them relate to the production and management of University records and information.

Records you create while a University employee generally do NOT become your personal property. Official department records belong to the University and must be managed in accordance with established University and State policy. Some incidental personal records are expected and those should be maintained separately.
