Administrative Policies, Procedures and Guidelines
Welcome to the Administrative Policies Manual. This Manual is in its infancy. The goal is to compile in one place all administrative policies, procedures, and guidelines that have general applicability throughout the University. As new policies are written and existing policies are revised, they will be added to this Manual.

If you are a University employee who is writing or revising a policy, procedure, or guideline, please consult the policy statement at 2-1 of this Manual: Authority to Establish Policies, Procedures or Guidelines. That policy outlines the formatting and the process for approval of policies, procedures and guidelines. There is a link in that policy to the forms you are encouraged to use. The forms are also directly available from the General Counsel Web page.

This Manual does not, have policies, procedures and guidelines that are not applicable to the entire university that may exist at a divisional, college, or departmental level. Also, policies adopted by the Board of Trustees are contained in a separate Manual at https://www.cmich.edu/bot/about/Pages/policy_manual.aspx.
