  • To complete the review of, and take action on, policies that were in-progress during AY 12-13.
  • To review and take action on policies charged for development/revision in AY 13-14 as well as those that were under development in AY 12-13 and ready to enter the review process in AY 13-14.
  • To review and take action on policies that have been identified for review by the Office of Legal Affairs (OLA) and Global Risk Management Services (GRMS).
  • To begin implementation of the five-year review cycle provision of Development, Review, Approval, and Promulgation of University-Level Policies (B 5.0), approved in December 2012.
