Classification of Change: Associated Action and Form Requirements

Appendix to Policy

New policies and revisions that require Policy Advisory Committee (PAC) and possibly President’s Policy Committee (PPC) review, must also be reviewed by the Senate Committee(s) assigned to the policy in the Senate Matrix, if listed. The policy owner will send the policy draft  to the Diversity Community of Practice – Equity Lens Policy Review Committee (ELPRC) prior to being reviewed by PAC/PPC. See PAC/PPC and DCOP Meeting Schedule.
