University Records Management

​As a nurturing institution that fosters the transformative power of advanced learning, and a publicly funded institution, Central Michigan University has significant responsibilities relating to the vast amounts of records produced by the institution. The University is committed to an effective record keeping system that preserves the University’s history, meets regulatory and legal requirements, minimizes risk, and optimizes the use of space and financial resources.

The CMU Records Management Policy and Records Retention Schedule cover general records common to most offices at the University.

The records described are necessary:

  1. for the continued effective operation of the University,
  2. to constitute an adequate and proper recording of University activities, and
  3. to protect the legal rights of the University and its students.
