Records Management

Records Management Program

The College of Human Ecology at Cornell University has its own comprehensive records management program. This program provides a cost-effective approach to the management of all records created, received and maintained by the college and ensures that those records determined to be of enduring value are transferred to the Cornell University Archives where they are preserved and made available to researchers.

The Records Management Program is responsible for managing all college records from their creation to their final disposition. That disposition can be to one of the following locations:

  • The University Archives located in the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections for permanent retention
  • The records center in MVR Hall, where records will eventually be shredded/recycled according to a properly authorized records disposition schedule
  • Temporary storage for sponsored faculty research material
