Record Management Policies

Effective records management practices ensure the accuracy and accessibility of information under the custody or control of the University of Guelph. By preparing and following a Record Retention and Disposition Policy and Record Retention and Disposition Schedule, functional units of the University can manage the records for which they are responsible in a consistent manner.

University of Guelph Record Retention and Disposition Policy

Every department is encouraged to create and implement a records management policy and retention/disposition schedule, and to make that policy available for public viewing on their department’s website and/or this page.

Visit the Information and Records Management page for more information including a policy template.
