Authority and Responsibilities

The Georgia Records Act (O.C.G.A. 50-18-90 et seq.) mandates that all records created as part of the regular performance of duties by state employees and paid for by public funds are the property of the State of Georgia. As a public institution governed by the University System of Georgia, Kennesaw State University is obligated to comply with this legislation.

The Department of Archives and Records Management was established in 2004 by Dr. Randy Hinds, Chief Information Officer. The Archives and Records and Information Management work together to ensure that the retention and disposition of Kennesaw State University records satisfies relevant state and federal laws and regulations, as well as professional standards, and establishes and preserves our institutional memory.

Faculty, staff, and administrators of Kennesaw State must contact the Archives before removing or destroying official university records.
