All polices will be made available from a single “Institutional Policies” link on the UMFK website.
The procedure for submitting new or revised policies will be the following: complete the new Policy Creation/Modification Form available under Campus Forms or from the Policies page; seek input on the policy from either VPAS or Academic Leadership Council; receive approval by either the Vice President for Academic Affairs (VPAA) or the Vice President for Administration (VPA); deliver the VPAA/VPA signed form to the President’s Office for final approval. The President may choose to bring the policy to Executive or Cabinet for further input prior to making a decision.
Upon making a decision, the President’s office will return the policy form to either the VPAA or the VPA. It is the responsibility of these two offices to submit the electronic version of approved policies to Web Services and to maintain the signed policy forms.
Policies will not be published and will not go into effect until the authorized and approved signatures are received. New policies will be posted to the web and then a link will be emailed to campus. All policies should be reviewed at least every five years by the Initiating Department.
