Catch up on University policy
Highlights from February’s Policy Council meeting.
February 26, 2019
On Feb. 14, the University Policy Council discussed proposed revisions to the University’s Shared Governance Statement. Recommendations include removing redundant verbiage and requiring that the University’s constituent groups be consulted in the University’s decision-making process to reflect current practice. A draft of the statement is available for review in SharePoint through March 14. To submit feedback on the draft, email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the feedback-submission form on the University Policy SharePoint site.
As part of the comprehensive review of the Trustees’ policy manual, the Council continued discussion of the following Board policies with substantive changes recommended:
- Academic planning and programs
- Alcohol and drugs
- Evaluation of the University president
- Transfer credit
The Council also recommended creating a subgroup to review research and revise the policy on evaluation of the University president to better reflect the University’s shared-governance model.
