Box Internal Collaboration - Departmental Folder

Service Overview

A department Box folder is a shared location for storing files for a University division (VP or academic dean). These folders are distinct from the individual Box folders that are allocated to faculty, staff, and students: 

  • They are for storage of documents that are critical to the continued operation of an institutional department or division. 
  • They persist beyond the employment status of any individual within that office. 

This form is only required to request the creation of a new top-level (VP or academic dean) departmental Box folder.  There are currently 18 top-level for each University VP and academic dean (e.g., A&S, Law, Provost, Business & Finance, Advancement, Enrollment Management, Athletics, etc.).  If you simply want to create a sub-folder for an academic or administrative department within your division (e.g., Chemistry, History, HR, Facilities), you can contact the co-owners of your division's existing Box folder (which is typically your VP/AVP/dean). 

We highly recommend there be at least two co-owners for each Department Box folder with the ability to grant or revoke access to the contents.
