All policies submitted for publishing will use the core templates. The University uses a suite of four templates that cover the more than 200 policies in the University Policy Library.
- Policy - provides the requirements, responsibilities, definitions, and reason for having a policy on this subject
- Procedure - contains information needed to complete an action/process; often a series of interrelated steps
- Appendix - may be used in a variety of ways to supplement the requirements listed in the policy
- FAQ - contains questions and answers related to the subject matter
The most structured of the templates is the policy template. The standard template consists of sections that need to be completed when writing a policy.
Below are descriptions of each section as well as tips, examples, and more. If assistance is needed with completing any of the other templates, please contact the Policy Program Director at 612-624-8081 or send an email to email@example.com.
