Statement of Authority
The Office of University Archives is responsible for developing the general records retention schedules for management and disposition of university records common to many offices, as well as developing schedules for records unique to campus offices. Further, the University Archives provides for the selection, preservation and research use of records after their current administrative, fiscal, and/or legal values have expired that have enduring historical value in:
- documenting the origin, development, and operation of University Offices;
- relating the roles of the faculty and staff and/or student organizations to the operational activities of the University or campus life.
This authority, originally established by Board of Trustees actions in 19651 and 19662, and set forth in Section IX of the OSU Operating Manual, was reaffirmed by the Board of Trustees’ Resolution No. 2009-11 in July of 2008.
