Box Manager

A Box Manager coordinates Box for their functional unit/department (i.e., area). The Box Manager should be a full-time University official with decision making responsibilities and management understanding of their area.


The Box Manager’s responsibilities include:

  1. Collaborating with the area’s Data Steward to coordinate the Box folder structure.
  2. Managing the folder structure for their area.
  3. Maintaining access to the folders for their area.
  4. Maintaining a departmental document listing folder structure and access.
  5. Removing access promptly when staff members change jobs to other areas or leave the University by processing the appropriate paperwork through Human Resources.
  6. Supporting training and educational opportunities for the department.
  7. Enlisting the help of the area’s Data Steward and/or Information Services security staff members when needed.
  8. Ensuring Box department folders are not renamed as the system relies upon the system-generated names for automatic processes.
  9. Contacting the HelpDesk when a change in the Box Manager is needed.


Please contact the HelpDesk at (765) 658-4294 or to find out who the Box Manager is for your area.
