A policy is a governing principle that establishes a standard for action. It enhances the institutional mission, reduces risk and /or promotes operational efficiency and compliance with any applicable laws and regulations. A policy may direct functions in a specific operating unit and/or have institution-wide application. Policies are not considered effective until they have been reviewed and approved through the official process. Approved policies are meant to guide the institution strategically, and are not frequently changed.
