Office of Policy Compliance, ARMICS and Special Projects
How Policies are Managed
Divisions/departments shall compile drafts of new, or revised, University Policies and Procedures that fall within their purview, using the University defined templates. These drafts and/or revisions must be forwarded to the Office of Policy Compliance by the respective Division Head.
The Office of Policy Compliance will coordinate all reviews of these documents, and if revisions are necessary will return the policy/procedure to the Division Head for further action. Once the University Policy and/or Procedure has undergone the necessary reviews the Office of Policy Compliance will assign a classification and policy/procedure number, and coordinate with the Division Head submission to the President's Cabinet for review and approval. When the University Policy and/or Procedure is approved by the President's Cabinet, the Office of Policy Compliance will arrange for the appropriate signatures, and will then post these documents to the University Policy and Procedure Manual on this website.
University divisions/departments shall be responsible for the content of University Policies and Procedures for which they have oversight authority, and will coordinate with the Office of Policy Compliance the dissemination of information about these policies and procedures to the campus community. The President's Cabinet shall be responsible for reviewing, recommending modifications to, and approving University Policies and Procedures. The Office of Policy Compliance shall be responsible for coordinating the review, approval, numeric assignment and distribution of new and revised University Policies and Procedures. It shall also maintain the central repository website which houses the University Policy and Procedure Manual.
