  • Records Management

    As a reminder to all employees, Youngstown State University is a public institution of higher education created under the laws of the state of Ohio and therefore, is subject to the sunshine laws.  The sunshine laws are a set of two statues that regulate how YSU handles its written documentation and meetings of its public body, the Board of Trustees.  The Public Records Law (Ohio Revised Code Section 149.43) and the Open Meetings Law (Ohio Revised Code Section 121.22) require that most, if not all, documentation and meetings be accessible to the public.  There are exceptions, of course; most notably for YSU is the student records exception described under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.  However, most written records, including e-mail, that serve to document the activities of YSU are public records and therefore subject to the public disclosure.  Similarly, discussions by YSU Board of Trustees where public business is discussed are also generally open to the public. 

    The University has adopted two policies that implement the Public Records Law.  University policy 3356-9-07 Public Records, sets for the procedures the University follows in adhering to the public records law, including how to respond to a public records request, and University policy 3356-9-09 Records Management, describes the methods employed by the university in maintaining, preserving, and disposing of its records. 

    All employees should review and understand how these policies affect their jobs at YSU.  Any questions can be directed to the Office of General Counsel at 330-941-2340.
