Liz Francis, University Records Manager
Job Title
University Records Manager

What I do

I help Tufts offices and departments effectively manage University records by providing guidance about records retention, secure and efficient storage, and confidential destruction. I also help staff identify inactive records with long-term value to Tufts that should be transferred to the Archives. Please contact me with questions about managing University records or to schedule a consultation.
