The Common Records Schedule (CRS) is the backbone of records and information management at the University.
The CRS is designed to assist units in ensuring that their university records are organized and maintained for operational and administrative effectiveness, and that they are disposed of appropriately.
The CRS presents a model for the organization of common records across the University, organized into eleven functional areas based on common functions.
