A Records Management Framework for Princeton University

Princeton University is committed to meeting its administrative, fiscal, and legal obligations by systematically managing the records created in the course of the University’s academic and administrative operations. The management of records includes appropriate practices for creating and organizing those records, effective retention of those records determined to have permanent or enduring value, and proper destruction of those records determined to have no permanent or enduring value once operational needs and legal requirements have been met.

This framework and relevant materials developed as part of the records management program, including procedural guidelines, will be made available to members of the Princeton University community for their ongoing reference.
