Creating & Maintaining Policies

Creating & Maintaining Policies
BOV Policy #1 (2014) Creating and Maintaining Policies addresses the creation and maintenance of all University policies and establishes expectations for accountability; clear, consistent formatting; institution-wide publication; and periodic review and evaluation.

In general, the Responsible Executive or Office prepares a draft of the policy using the Policy Template provided and securing feedback from designated governance groups or individuals as necessary. Each policy type is subject to an approval process, and must be widely publicized or distributed to the University community. A copy of the policy template is available here - Policy Template

BOV Policy # 1 (2014) outlines the process for policy initiation, development, and approval. Policy drafters should consult BOV Policy # 1 and this Policymaking Process Checklist, to ensure process compliance.
