University-wide policies and procedures consolidated online for easy reference
by kim Urquhart
Up-to-date University-wide policies and procedures can now be found with the simple click of a mouse at www.policies.emory.edu. The new Web site, accessible from the Emory home page and searchable by topic, provides a standardized and uniform process for the approval and dissemination of policies with university-wide applications.
Academic and Administrative Information Technology, the Office of General Counsel, Human Resources and other administrative units collaborated to design and implement the central online repository for policies. Each division that has university-wide policies was asked to review its policies for accuracy and applicability. Appointed divisional representatives were provided training on the policy content management tool that was developed in-house by AAIT. The divisions’ policies were then moved from divisional Web sites onto the centralized site.
Going forward, all new policies and revisions to current policies will be managed through policies.emory.edu.
“The University owes great thanks to everyone who worked on creating this resource, which will be invaluable,” said Vice President and Deputy to the President Gary Hauk.
