Office of University Policy and Procedures

The Office of University Policy and Procedures is located within the Operations and Planning Office. This office serves as an umbrella for the Policy Oversight Workgroup (POW) and provides a centralized hub for efficient management of University policies and procedures on campus. 

The purpose of the POW is to facilitate and support policy development, review, approval, and communication by providing templates, routing, storage, and monitoring of internal and external requirements for new policies or changes to existing policy. While the office does not write or enforce policy, it is a resource for best practices on University policy and procedure projects.
