RIM Month Wrap-Up

RIM Month Archive

RIMS would like to say a big thank you to everyone who participated in one of our RIM Month 2024 events. We had 116 UT employees who attended at least one event, for a total of 206 hours of staff learning time! A particular shout out for the highest participation numbers within a single college, school, or unit goes to UT Intercollegiate Athletics (25 participants) and the UT College of Education (19 participants).

If you missed one of our virtual sessions, you can now access the recordings and materials through our RIM Month training archive on the RIMS SharePoint site here: RIM Month 2024 Archive.

IG110: Learning the Records Lifecycle

As part of this year’s RIM Month celebration, RIMS rolled out a new in-person, interactive workshop, “IG110: Learning the Records Lifecycle.” This three-hour class focuses on three key pieces of the records lifecycle: determining if something is a record, classifying records using the UT Records Retention Schedule (UTRRS), and determining when a record is eligible for disposition. In this class, each piece of the lesson is paired with hands-on activities and classroom discussions to help participants immediately apply what they are learning. IG110 will be added into the regular rotation of RIMS training offerings for the next year.
