UMB policies and procedures are processed through the Policy Oversight Workgroup (POW). The POW meets on the third Wednesday of every month to discuss developing and finalized campus policy and procedure.  

Additional resources have been provided for leadership and staff working on new or updated content. Please refer to the template and workflow documents in the left navigation for additional guidance. We are currently considering other supplemental resources, including a training class on how to write policy and procedures.

For department- or school-level policy or procedures, please see apprioriate internal leadership.

Learn more about the Polices and Procedures Library

Welcome to the newly combined Policies and Procedures Library!
This library contains campuswide policy and procedures for the University of Maryland, Baltimore as well as links to University System of Maryland policies. Additional information regarding School Resources can be found on the left navigation. Department- or unit- specific policies or procedures will remain at those appropriate levels.
The enhanced search features allow multiple ways to find the policy and procedure relevant to your campus needs. As with the previous system, a simple search can be made using keywords. An additional feature has been added called the Index Search. The Index Search allows you to sort by keyword but also by date, unit, type, or leadership.
Other upcoming features will include subscription services, a satisfaction survey, and interrelated links to policies and procedures.
This library is a central resource with enhanced features designed as part of the 2011-2016 Strategic Planning Cycle. As part of the last strategic plan, co-chairs Anthony Bibbo, MBA, senior administrator, Department of Pediatrics, School of Medicine, and John Jensen, assistant vice president, Central Administrative Support Services, directed efforts for a centralized resource of standard operating procedures for business processes, which was coordinated by Shannon Dawkins Wrenn, JD. Wrenn was appointed director of the Office of University Policy and Procedures under the direction of Roger Ward, EdD, JD, MPA, senior vice president for operations and institutional effectiveness.
