Records Management Procedures – Records Destruction
It is the practice of the University of Delaware to destroy inactive University records, when they are have satisfied all retention requirements and are no longer needed by the University for administrative, legal, fiscal, or historical purposes. Destruction is carried out in accordance with approved department records retention schedules.
