University Policy and Rules Office

University Policy and Rules Office

The University Policy and Rules Office coordinates policy creation, review, and approval of the Administrative Policy Statements, and publication of the Board of Regents Governance, Presidential Orders, the Faculty Code and Governance, and the Student Governance and Policies. This office assists in development, review, approval, and maintenance of policy for the University, and serves as a consultant to the University’s administration and departments for documentation of University-wide policy.

The University Policy and Rules Office also oversees the University’s rule-making process, including the review, creation, amendment, and repeal of the UW’s Washington Administrative Code rules (Title 478 WAC). In carrying out this function, the office works with the UW unit promulgating the rule, the Attorney General’s Office, and the Office of the Board of Regents for final adoption. In addition, the office maintains the UW rule-making docket, plans and facilitates public hearings, and produces the required legal notices.
