What I Do

I provide recordkeeping advice to offices and departments, including storage, retention, and proper disposition of records. I develop and maintain records retention schedules and related policies. I also conduct surveys to help offices and departments identify inactive records with long-term informational or historical value to the university, which may be appropriate for transfer to DCA.
