The Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost is responsible for conducting audits of course fee transactional activity, as well as sharing a summary of findings with the Tuition Assessment Oversight Advisory Committee, Provost's Council, and college fiscal officers. As a result of the FY2017 audit, the committee suggested that the Course Fee policy be updated to provide clarity in the language and in the roles and responsibilities. See the new and improved policy at Course Fees. Effective date of the policy revision: January 16, 2019.
ISU's policy on FMLA has been revised to increase the amount of leave for parents in cases where both are employed by Iowa State University and are expecting the arrival of a child. Effective date of the revision: November 15, 2018
This policy has been broadened to allow donations of leave to an employee whose immediate family member has suffered a catastrophic illness or injury. The revision, effective August 1, 2018, aligns with the university’s strategic plan and the other Regent Institutions.
The goal of the new Authorship policy, effective June 18, 2018, is that authorship assignments reflect actual contributions to publications and other scholarly products and creative work, including the generation of intellectual property. Below the policy, note the link to Authorship: Applications & Guidance from the Office of the Vice President for Research.
Policies in Development

Effective November 11, 2019, this INTERIM CHALKING POLICY defines chalking and associated rules, and will be in effect until a permanent policy can be developed and implemented.
This new policy defines types of ISU-sponsored international travel and requires centralized registration of international trips prior to departure. Central registration allows the university to coordinate resources to best support travelers, promote safety, and to comply with regulations. A draft of the new International Travel Registration policy is available for your review and comments. Please submit your comments and questions to email@example.com by November 30, 2019. The policy will not be finalized until after the comment period, so your feedback is important!
October 15: See updated draft for clarification of the definition of ISU-Sponsored Travel.
