The Policy Office has updated the categorization of University Policies in an effort to streamline their organization, use a more intuitive approach, and better reflect the administration and governance of the University. The Policy Office has also updated the numbering system used for University Policies, moving away from an historical practice that is no longer relevant as the University no longer uses a physical, printed publication to communicate its Policies. University Policies are now organized by these new categories as described below, and each University Policy has a new identifier made up of the initials representing the new category and a unique number within that category (e.g, AO 01). While new Policies will only have this identifier, all Policies in existence prior to this change will continue to also have their previous identifiers noted (e.g., AO 01). If you have any questions, please contact the Policy Office.
