University Policies fall within a greater hierarchy of laws, statutes and regulations. The Board of Visitors has been authorized by the Commonwealth of Virginia to govern Radford University. (See Code of Virginia section 23-155.7; 23-9.2:3.) The Board of Visitors has delegated the authority to manage the University to the President.
As a part of that management, the President, in conjunction with the President's Cabinet, will direct the development and implementation of University Policies and Procedures.
A policy is a statement of management philosophy and general rule, established to provide direction and assistance to the University community in the conduct of University affairs.
A procedure is a statement that outlines specific actions to be taken to conform to established policies, allowing for the orderly implementation of those policies.
