Regulation Definition

What are University Regulations?

University Regulations are statements of institutional positions on issues. They both reflect and support the University’s mission and values. While developed primarily to guide institutional decisions or actions, they also may articulate the institution's compliance with external mandates, encourage efficient use of resources or promote consistency by those acting for the institution. University Regulations impact the entire institution and their applicability is not limited to a single institutional unit. University Regulations require the approval of the President for Implementation.

How are Regulations Approved?

University Regulations are reviewed or initiated based on a request from a constituency group or in response to federal or state mandates. Constituency groups or specific task forces draft the new and/or revise the current Regulation. The President’s office then circulates the draft Regulation to the Constituency Groups for review and comment. After input the revision, the University President approves the Regulation.
