University Policy Home

Welcome to the University of Notre Dame’s Policy Site, the authoritative source for all University policies. Here you will find the following tools to help facilitate University policy development, approval, and retention:

Policy Repository - standardized University policies that have been through the official development and approval process, and legacy policies that, in time, will go through the process.
Policy Definitions - defines University versus internal policies, procedures, standards, guidelines, and checklists.
Policy Development & Approval Process - a development flowchart that details the steps necessary to create effective University and internal policies.
Policy Scope Statement - a guide to summarizing the purpose, potential impact, and compliance mechanisms for new or revised University policies.
Standard Policy Template - a standard format for University policies.
Use of these tools and procedures is highly encouraged to make development and promulgation of University policies more efficient.
