SECTION BF.1


LOCAL GOVERNANCE
POLICY AND PROCEDURE DEVELOPMENT 

Procedure


POLICY DEVELOPMENT


Any faculty or staff member may request consideration of new policies, amendments or deletions to existing policies. All requests shall be submitted through their chain of command to the appropriate President’s Cabinet member.

Upon review and approval of the request, the President’s Cabinet member shall present the proposal to the President’s Cabinet for consideration and recommendation to the Board of Trustees. Proposed policies, amendments, or deletions may be submitted directly to the Board and bypass the President’s Cabinet in case of emergency, as determined by the Board.

New policies, amendments and deletions shall become effective upon date of action or at a future date designated by the Board. After Board adoption, changes shall be incorporated into the Board Policy Manual.

Board-adopted or amended policies shall supersede all previous versions, and all other previously adopted policies or other documents addressing the same issues have no force or effect to the extent that they conflict with the newly adopted or amended policy.
