Policies

ACU's policies connect the university's mission to the everyday actions of its community, clarify the institution's expectations of its individual members, mitigate institutional risk, enhance efficiency, and support the university's compliance with laws and regulations.

University Policies are policies that have a broad application throughout the university community (generally pertaining to more than one division or department). University Policies are established through the University’s Policy Development Process.    

Departmental Policies are policies that do not have the broad scope or significant impact of University Policies, but instead apply to only a single division or department and are established by that department or division. While department or divisions are free to develop their own policies, they are encouraged to consult with Legal Services on any policies that involve institutional risk or compliance with laws or regulations. 

Please direct any questions about this website and ACU’s University Policy Development Process to Legal Services.
