Records Management is the systematic and administrative control of records throughout their life cycle to ensure efficiency and economy in their creation, use, handling, control, maintenance, and disposition. Applying records management in your office can lead to more efficient file searches, provides you with legal protection for document discovery or litigation, frees up space otherwise being occupied by seldom-consulted records, and helps the university document its functions and history. ALL university employees are responsible for management and retention of their records according to approved schedules.
UWM Records Management can assist your office with active records maintenance, records surveys and inventories, creating records retention schedules, confidential destruction, archival transfer, and records retrieval of documents already in the archives. For more information, contact Brad Houston, University records officer, at email@example.com or (414)-229-6979.
