Formulation and Approval of Operating Policies

Operating Policies are policies that have broad application throughout the University and that provide interpretation and implementation of the Governing Policies of the University that have been adopted by the Board.  Governing Policies are controlling if there is conflicting language with an Operating Policy.  In formulating Operating Policies, the Administration will develop a process which encourages consultation with those who will be directly affected by the Operating Policy and will have the policy reviewed by Administrative Council prior to its adoption.  The President approves all Operating Policies, which will be prepared in a standard format and electronically stored in a policy library.
