University Integrity and Compliance Office (UICO) Review
|Responsible department edits policy per feedback from UICO and finalizes policy
President's Leadership Team (PLT) Approval**
Sponsor submits policy to the PLT for review and approval
*The sponsor will determine appropriate vetting of a new or revised policy and may consult with University Counsel to determine if a policy requires Board of Trustees approval.
**New policies require approval by the President’s Leadership Team (PLT). It is the responsibility of the sponsor to submit a final draft policy to the PLT for approval. Revised policies, with the exception of minor changes (editorial or style), require sponsor level approval and completion of steps 1 through 8. Once a policy is approved, the sponsor will send the new or revised policy to the University Integrity and Compliance 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.
