President's Cabinet Approval**
Sponsor to present draft policy to President's Cabinet for review and approval
*The sponsor will determine appropriate vetting of a new or revised policy and should consult with University Counsel to determine if a policy requires Board of Trustees approval.
**Proposed or significantly revised policies require approval by the President’s Cabinet. It is the responsibility of the sponsor to present a final draft policy to the President’s Cabinet for review and approval. Policies that are updated for minor, editorial, and/or style changes, do not require approval by the President’s Cabinet; but do require approval by the VP level sponsor of the policy. Once a policy is approved, the sponsor or designee is responsible for sending the new or revised policy to the University Integrity and Compliance Office for publication in the online library. To submit a policy, email it in the appropriate Word template to email@example.com.
The above outlined process aligns with the university’s policy on Developing University Administrative Policies.
