What's new and important for you to know?


The new Data Classification policy provides the university with a method to categorize the information collected, stored, and managed by the university community.

This new policy establishes requirements and standards for recruitment and selection of P&S employees. The Recruitment and Selection - P&S policy provides parameters for search committee use, and clarifies roles and principles in the recruitment and selection process.


The SDR, which includes the Student Conduct Code, has been revised to comply with new federal regulations under amendments to the Clery Act required by the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (SaVE) which is part of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) of 2013. The Dean of Students Office has taken this opportunity to also update and clarify procedures and wording in the SDR.
