University Guidelines


What are University Guidelines?

Guidelines generally pertain to divisions, colleges, schools, departments, programs, offices, and other university subdivisions. Guidelines typically provide more procedural detail or "how-to" than university policies do, and more administrative flexibility. Guidelines must not conflict with university policy. If a guideline addresses a university-wide issue, it must be approved by the President's Council. The Board of Trustees approves all policies.

Who do these guidelines cover?

Guidelines and policies apply to the Board of Trustees, all university employees, individuals associated with the University while on campus or representing the University, and volunteers on campus.

How I determine whether an issue should be addressed as a policy or a guideline?

Use the criteria established in the memo titled Determining Whether to Use a Policy or a Guideline to Address a University Issue (pdf). Contact the Policy Office for additional assistance at ext. 7355 or email Cara O'Sullivan.
