The Policies and Procedures Manual is published in electronic format only by the Provost's Office and is available online at
. This online manual contains all official, University-approved versions of University Policies.
University Policies in the Policies and Procedures Manual are organized by administrative division. Each division head is considered the "Responsible Officer" for the development, authorization and implementation of that division's University Policies.
Each Responsible Officer annually appoints a Policy Liaison who will serve as
the main point of contact with the Provost's Office for all policy-related
matters for the division or campus.
Campus chief academic affairs officers are responsible for ensuring that all
Faculty Manuals are kept up-to-date and revised to reflect newly approved
University Policies within six months of approval.
The Provost's Office maintains the official Policies and Procedures Manual for
the University, and coordinates review and approval of all University Policies
and Faculty Manuals.
A complete list of Responsible Officers, Policy Liaisons and other
policy-related University administrators is available for download below.

University Policy Archive

known copies of obsolete and deleted University Policies,

Policies are up to date and revised when necessary to reflect
current policy, practice and/or procedures. Each University
Policy should be reviewed by the originating unit and revised as
necessary at least every five years.
Duplicate Versions of Policies
If there is a discrepancy between a unit version of a policy and
the Policies and Procedures Manual version, the version in the
electronic Policies and Procedures Manual at
will be considered the official version.
Units may not have separate websites with duplicate versions of
the policies. All unit websites and paper documents should
reference the policies available at
