Official University Policies and Procedures


Policies reflect the rules governing the implementation of campus processes.  Procedures, on the other hand, represent an implementation of policy and should evolve over time as new tools emerge, new processes are designed, and the risks associated with a campus process changes in response to internal or external environmental changes.  Together these written documents help members of the campus community understand how things get done.

Built on the efforts of campus policy and procedure "owners", this site is designed to make policy and procedure information widely accessible so that members of the campus community can make decisions and streamline campus administrative processes with the knowledge that their actions conform with official campus policies and procedures.  In addition, such information provides a basis for individual and departmental accountability.
