University Policies and Procedures Manual

Welcome to the University Policies and Procedures Manual (“UPPM”). The UPPM is the official repository of University policies and procedures. Please see the Policy Guidelines for more details about the UPPM and University policy-making protocols.

Historically, the University had implemented University-wide policies through a collection of Presidential Memoranda (“PMs”).  All active PMs have now been updated and converted to the UPPM format, as appropriate.   Also included in the UPPM are links to University department and division policies. These departmental and divisional policies will supplement the University-wide policies of the UPPM.
