In revising College of Education Policy Manual during spring of 2001, it was decided to omit many university policies. Reason for this decision was that when university policies are changed, such changes do not, sometimes, find their way into every copy of college’s policy manual. Such occurrence may cause the reader of College of Education Policy Manual to become misinformed of latest policy that provides procedure required in a particular important area.
Areas covered by university policy are sometimes mentioned in College of Education Policy Manual, with instructions to reader to follow latest university policy.
Comprehensive listing of policies and procedures in college of Education found here in does not cover all situations that may appear. When a problem arises in college that is not covered by the College Policies and Procedures Manual, administration, faculty, and staff shall be guided by rule of reason.
This manual uses a codification system that is designed to be accessible while retaining flexibility for adding or deleting items. Two digits before decimal point refer to major section and digits and letters after decimal point refer to where policy is placed sequentially.
Dates of adoption, revision and/or review of each policy appear in box at the beginning of each policy.
Table of Contents is at beginning of manual.NOTE: THIS MANUAL OF POLICIES AND PROCEDURES FOR COLLEGE OF EDUCATION SOMETIMES REFERS READER TO SEE MOST CURRENT UNIVERSITY POLICY IN A PARTICULAR AREA.
PROCEDURES FOR POLICY ADDITIONS AND REVISIONS
Policies originate with the Dean of College of Education, College Administrative Council, college standing committees, and faculty. Revisions of existing policies may originate from any of these sources and must be approved by dean, in consultation with CAC and college faculty.
