Biographical / Historical

Housed under the Office of the Secretary, the DePaul University Department of Records Management was established to meet the growing need for a systematic records management program at DePaul. The mission of the Department of Records Management is "to ensure that University departments retain the necessary information to meet legal, financial, administrative and historic needs and dispose of non-essential records in a timely and appropriate manner" (, retrieved January 28, 2015). To this end, Records Management has developed an official Records Retention Schedule which all University departments are expected to follow. Depending on the type of record, materials that have outlived their administrative value may be stored permanently, shredded and discarded, or transferred to the University Archives. To further ensure that the University is in compliance with Records Management protocol, each University department has an appointed Records Coordinator. The Records Coordinator participates in records management training and is charged with implementing appropriate policies and procedures in his or her department.
