The records officers from each UW System institution form the University of Wisconsin Records Officer Council. The tasks of the Council include:

  1. Producing general schedules for the University of Wisconsin System,
  2. Providing records management resources, including this website, for the University of Wisconsin System; and
  3. Working together with the State of Wisconsin Public Records Board to advocate on behalf of the University of Wisconsin System.

Institution Records Management

The University of Wisconsin System believes that efficient records management is vital to the administrative control and operational success of its component campuses. The UW System is committed to the idea that each campus should operate an effective records management program to ensure efficiency and economy in their creation, use, handling, control, maintenance, and disposition of records. The UW System also believes strongly that its component campuses must cooperate to ensure a top-notch records management program across the entire UW System, through standardizing records management practices as much as possible and through increased reliance on System-wide general records schedules.
