New content will be added and updated as approved. While this webpage is intended to include all significant University policies, the formal adoption of policy is a new and developing process.    There may be applicable University policies that are not listed or linked through this webpage.  Individuals should inquire with appropriate University offices and departments about specific policies that may apply to specific activities.  The absence of an applicable policy from this webpage does not excuse a member of the University community from compliance with University policy.  Individual colleges and departments may have standards and guidelines, all of which must be consistent with University-wide policies.
