Office of University Compliance and Ethics

University Policy Program


The Clemson University Policy Program supports the Office of University Compliance and Ethics by assisting in the development, routing,  storage, communication, maintenance, and review of Administrative Policies and is guided by the University Policy on Policies.

The aim of the program is to create an effective, efficient, equitable, and a robust policy program for all University community members to utilize, access, and engage in University policies. Creating a culture of compliance requires supporting individuals’ ability to do the right thing because they are knowledgeable members of the University community.

Current Efforts

The policy program continues to onboard departments across the University and to transition their policies and supplemental documents to the centralized University Policies site, as their policies meet new program requirements. New, recently updated, and converted policies and supplemental materials can be explored by clicking on the "University Policies" button on the homepage or selecting "University Policies" from the policy program dropdown meu. There, Community members can search policies and related documents by their titles, key words, or responsible departments. The work to convert these policies is managed through Policy Central. Individuals working on policies will be provided access to Policy Central once they have completed training.

While transitioning policies to the new site many policies will remain available on individual department policy sites until they are converted. If you are unable to find a specific policy on the University Policies site, please explore the policy sites linked below or reach out to the policy program at .

Individuals who wish to develop a new or revise a current Administrative policy should submit a Policy Request Form to begin the process. Additional resources for policy development and review can be found under "Policy Resources."

Future Plans

While the current focus of the policy program is on Administrative policies, the program aims to provide structure and support for all unit-level policies across the University, in the future. Units seeking guidance on policy development and review in their area should reach out to the policy program to set up a consultation.
