Every state agency is required to designate at least one individual to coordinate records management activities between the agency and the Connecticut State Library. The designated individual for the University of Connecticut is the University Archivist, Betsy Pittman. The records management program is a function of the University Archives, located in the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center (Unit 1205).
In addition to Betsy’s efforts, The University’s Privacy Officer is available to assist departments with records and information management challenges. Bruce Gelston, the University Privacy Officer, assists faculty, staff, and students to navigate the rules and standards for protecting sensitive information and serves as a central resource for privacy related issues. Together, we can help you to understand state and University records policies and procedures, complete record inventories, assist with the proper disposition of University records and offer best practices.
