Policy Framework

The Policy Framework and its associated procedures were first approved by the Board of Governors in November 2014 and amended in 2018. The framework was created to establish an effective and consistent approach to the governance of policy instruments for the university.

The framework provides structure for the university's policy instruments by:

  • Defining the types and categories of policy instruments.
  • Delineating responsibility for development, approval, implementation, maintenance and review.
  • Guiding development and review processes.
  • Standardizing formats.
  • Mandating formal review periods.

It also establishes the Policy Library: the official central repository for all university-wide policy instruments.
