University Policies and Procedures Manual
Welcome to Michigan Tech's University Policies and Procedures Manual. This Manual is a developing document and is available on this web page. The goal for this Manual is to include administrative policies and procedures that have general applicability throughout the University. As each policy is completed it will be made available in this Manual. To make it easy to download and read, we have divided the text into short sections and provided navigational buttons at the top and bottom of each page to assist you.
Other Policy and Procedure Manuals
As sections and chapters from the MTU Operating Procedures Manual are updated, they will be moved to this Manual. If you can not find the policy you are looking for here, please go to the MTU Operating Procedures Manual web site. At this time, the Board of Trustees Policy Manual will be separately maintained and is available from the Board of Trustees office home page or by clicking here.
Writing or Revising Policy or Procedure
If you are an University employee who is writing or revising a policy or procedure, please consult policy 2.1001 of this Manual: Establishing and Creating University Policy and Procedures. The policy outlines the policy and procedure formatting and organization, and the process for approval of policies and procedures. There is a link in that policy to the templates you are encouraged to use.
Questions, Advice, Service
Requests for advice and service for the University Policies and Procedures Manual should be directed to the office of Business Operations of the Vice President for Administration of Michigan Technological University by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
