Definitions of University Policies and Procedures
University policies are statements of institutional positions on issues. They both reflect and support the University's mission and values. While developed primarily to guide institutional decisions or actions, they also may articulate the institution's compliance with external mandates, encourage efficient use of resources or promote consistency by those acting for the institution. University policies impact the entire institution and their applicability is not limited to a single institutional unit. The implementation of University policies requires the approval of the President.
University procedures are written statements of specific processes initiated to implement a University Policy. Procedures are subject to regular change to improve the manner in which a policy is administered.
