As a leader of a student organization, you might have records that have a place in the archives for the university. It's easy enough to find out by contacting us for a consultation or records review!
Our department collects and preserves your "inactive" organizational records. These are the things you don't need to do your daily business and consult infrequently (perhaps once a year or less). We do this because we think history is important, but we also do it because of the records retention requirements of the state. Records retention schedules are lists and descriptions of public records. They include information about how long each type of records should be kept (retention period) and what should happen to it at the end of that period (disposition). As a public university, we have to follow the rules for keeping and destroying records as defined in Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 352.002.
Depending on the classification of your student organization, the records you produce may be governed by the Oregon University System Records Retention schedule. If you are unsure about whether your records need to be retained, please look through our Records Management site or contact us.
