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.

Policy Management

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 menu. There, community members can search policies and related documents by their titles, key words, responsible departments, or categories. The work to convert these policies is managed through Policy Central. Individuals working on policies will be provided access to Policy Central and system 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."

Unit-Level Support

While policy program focuses on the management of the University's administrative policies, the program now offers structure and support for policies and procedures at the unit-level. Units seeking guidance on policy development and review or who wish to utilize Policy Central for policy management and access should complete the Unit Onboarding to Policy Program form to set up a consultation.
