Policy reviews

Reviewing university policies to ensure they are concise, functional and accessible is a key strategy for enhancing organizational effectiveness.

In order to maintain the accuracy and relevance of university policies and procedures, regular policy reviews are mandated by the Policy on University Policies and Procedures. These reviews assist in confirming the relevance, validity, and applicability of university policies and procedures.

The policy review process is also used to recognize and incorporate required revisions, while determining the implications of such revisions. All university policies and associated procedures must undergo a substantive review every seven years (or earlier if required).

The president and vice-presidents are responsible for the maintenance and review of policies and procedures within their portfolios.

If you're planning revisions to an existing policy or procedure, contact the pertinent executive office or the Office of the University Secretary at policy@uvic.ca.
