University Operations and Policies

Policies and Guidelines


Policies apply across colleges, schools, institutes and operating units.

University policies help to ensure compliance with laws and best practices to achieve the University’s goals while reducing institutional risks. University policies apply to the operations and activities of the University regardless of location. The University reserves the right to changes its policies with or without notice.

Many guidelines are issued by individual departments and do not meet the criteria of a University policy. They are, however, important and have university-wide implications and are linked below for your convenience.

University policies and guidelines can apply to some or all members of the University Community, including students, faculty, staff, researchers, and others who are performing activities or providing services at  the University, including consultants, vendors, and contractors.
