The study aimed to elicit information on the records management practices of the records officers in handling the records of the Mindanao State University, Main Campus, as observed by selected faculty members and staff. Slovin’s formula was used to identify the 363 participants out of the 3,996 employees of the Campus. Purposive sampling was utilized in this study. Findings of the study revealed that based on the employees’ observations, the records of the Main Campus are managed. However, participants believed that the records officers lack the necessary skills in handling records. Top administration support is of utmost importance to have a good records management by sending records officers to seminars/workshops and other trainings on records management. Moreover, classification schemes used in records keeping in the different offices need to be examined to ensure the security of records; hence, digitization of records is suggested.
