Records Management

The Office of the Secretary serves as the champion for the DePaul University Records Management program. For many legal, fiduciary, and historical reasons, the university has declared several information sources as official records. Guided by the principles of the Records Management Policy​ and directed by the information in the Records Retention Schedule, the Department of Records Management works with all university departments to effectively manage and govern records and information.

The Department of Records Management provides a portfolio of services including: 
  • training opportunities
  • one-on-one file management consultations
  • paper-to-digital conversion project management
  • assistance with shredding and storage solutions
The mission of DePaul’s Department of Records Management is to establish the criteria for  retention and disposal of university records to ensure that University departments retain the necessary information to meet legal, financial, administrative, and historical needs and  dispose of non-essential records in a timely and appropriate manner.

The Department of Records Management also partners with the Special Collections & Archives​ to preserve the history of DePaul University.
