Subject: Policy Post - Your update on policies (Policy 40)

Date: 2 July 2014

This is your monthly update on the status of the Policy Project undertaken by the Secretariat & Office of General Counsel (SOGC).

The Board of Governors has approved on 3 June 2014 exceptions to Policy 40 – The Chair. Those exceptions (see Amendment 1) were necessary in order to provide for the eligibility of the affiliated and federated institutions of Waterloo (AFIW) faculty members to serve as chair of the Department of Religious Studies and/or to serve on a nominating committee for the chair of that department, which is a collaborative undertaking between the University of Waterloo and the AFIW.

For details on the Policy Project, you may refer to the webpage dedicated to institutional Policy Management at the University of Waterloo. Through this webpage, you will have access to the Policy Project, which is dedicated to the systematic review and renewal of institutional policies. On that page, you will find:

  • An overview of the policy project;
  • A review schedule;
  • Tools for use by the community;
  • The university’s policies, guidelines and procedures.

Supervisors, please post for the convenience of employees without direct access to email.
