The YSU Records Management Program is designed to help staff, faculty, and administrators: 

  • Evaluate whether to retain, destroy or archive university records using the YSU Records Retention Schedule and related forms.
  • Manage YSU records in a way that insures compliance with relevant state and federal laws. 
  • Organize records in an efficient manner, reducing their volume in university offices
