University Policies are now grouped numerically by chapter, based upon subject matter. The chapters, subchapters, and policies are found in the left side menu on all University Policies pages.
The Office of Legal Affairs is establishing a new system to number and organize official University Policies. The structure is similar to the one used by the UNC Board of Governors.
“With the University’s Policy Statement series having grown to more than 130 policies, it became clear that the existing system needed to be updated,” said Amy Kelso, Senior Associate General Counsel in the Office of Legal Affairs.
The new system will have a numerical grouping based upon subject matter. In addition, the official name for the collection will be “University Policies,” and they will be grouped as follows:
Chapter 100: Personnel Policies and Regulations
Chapter 200: Academic Policies
Chapter 300: Research, Intellectual Property and Information Technology
Chapter 400: Student and Alumni Matters
Chapter 500: Nondiscrimination
Chapter 600: Property, Finances, Services and Records
Chapter 700: Safety and Health
Chapter 800: University Policies of General Application
Kelso noted that some documents that were not officially included in the old Policy Statement series will be added as official University Policies, such as the “Tenure Policies, Regulations and Procedures,” the “Tenured Faculty Performance Review Policy” and the student grade appeal and grievance policies.
The new University Policy numbering system is expected go live on Friday, July 6, and will be accessible via the Office of Legal Affairs website. A cross-reference chart will be included to enable users to use the previous Policy Statement numbers to locate corresponding new Unviersity Policy numbers. While redirects will be used for a period of time, University website managers across campus should revise policy links and text references with the updated numbers and links.
