Review of Additions/Updates/Revisions to Presidential Policies

This section includes two types of policy actions:  

  1. Presidential Policies that have been updated or revised with minor changes that the Policy Owner has submitted as “technical and non-substantive” and do not, therefore, require the full vetting of the Presidential Policy process.  These are changes that often provide clarification to language based on feedback and questions from the campuses.  
  2. Presidential Policies that the Policy Owner has recommended for rescission, because they are no longer needed or applicable.  

Both of these policy actions will be posted here for 30 days to solicit comments or questions.  

Please identify any issues that may result from these updates to Presidential Policies. If you have any questions or comments, please contact the Policy Office.  After the end of the comment period, the policies will be updated as posted, the current policies replaced, and, if necessary, sent to the President for action.

BFB-G-39 Conflict of Interest (COI) Policy and Compendium of Specialized University Policies, Guidelines and Regulations Related to COI Rescission The policy is simply a list of the existing University policies related to conflict of interest and the policy’s updated substance is now in the Guidance on Compendium of Conflict of Interest and Integrity Policies. Thus, G-39 is redundant, obsolete and unnecessary and should be rescinded. November 19, 2018 Leave a comment!
