Policy Development

The University College is committed to effective governance and to this end is committed to have clear, concise policies, to direct its operations in a manner consistent with applicable laws, ethical norms and accepted best practices. In keeping with an aim for inclusion, the University College will ensure that stakeholders from the community have an input in policy development and that all policies are easily understood, and accessible. Policies connect the University College’s mission with individual conduct, clarify institutional expectations, support compliance with laws and regulations, mitigate institutional risk and enhance productivity, effectiveness and efficiency in the University College’s operations.

The institutions’ policy process is managed by the Office of Quality Assurance. Individual policies are owned by the various Responsible Offices charged with developing, updating, administering, communicating, training, ensuring compliance with, and providing resources to promote adherence to the policies, protocol, regulations or other guidelines that it issues.
