Missouri State University

Formulation and Approval of Unit Policies

Unit Policies are policies that have application only within a unit of the University.  They may provide interpretation and implementation of Governing Policies and Operating Policies or address special needs of the unit.  In formulating or revising Unit Policies, the unit will develop a process which encourages consultation with those within the unit who will be directly affected by the Unit Policy and to have the Unit Policy reviewed and approved by the major administrator.  Unit Policies will be prepared in a standard format and stored electronically.  Governing and Operating Policies are controlling if there is conflicting language between them and a Unit Policy.
