Retrieval of Personal Documents
Immediate Action Requested
It has come to the University’s attention that sensitive personal documents may have been disposed of through the University trash service. All units and individuals are reminded that all documents containing personal information, including Social Security numbers, grade information, health care records, and financial information, must not be discarded in the trash but must be either shredded or filed or destroyed in accordance with University policy and state and federal law. Anyone, including any faculty or staff employee, who is aware of any discarded papers and documents containing data or information of a personal nature in trash or recycling receptacles, or dumpsters, must retrieve such documents immediately. We request that such steps be taken today.
