Changing or Creating University Policies

The Office of General Counsel has a new resource for anyone involved with developing and submitting a university policy. The document, Policy Development and Implementation Advisory, outlines the steps to formulate, develop and implement a new policy or make changes to an existing policy. This includes policy format, required information, the different types of policies and the approval and implementation process.

The Office of General Counsel is responsible for the administration of all university policies and the official University Policy Register. A university attorney must review any new policies, or changes to existing policies, before they are submitted to the Board of Trustees.
