Policies of Eastern Oregon University


Throughout the 2017-18 Academic Year, Eastern Oregon University engaged in a process of creating a single catalog of university policies from five distinct sets of source materials. Those source materials are listed the Legacy Policy page. The process of melding them together was called the Policy Transition Project.

The Policies of Eastern Oregon University is the culmination of the Policy Transition Project.  It is a catalog of all of the university’s current policies.  Regardless of whether the policies originated with the former State Board of Higher Education, Chancellor’s Office, or EOU itself (and regardless of whether they were originally Oregon Administrative Rules, Internal Management Directives, or something else), these policies now use consistent, current terminology, appear in a uniform format, and are organized by subject.

To view them, click on each volume name.  Policies that are listed but which lack hyperlinks are policies that are still in development or which have not yet completed their transition.  For copies of listed policies that do not have hyperlinks, contact the General Counsel’s Office or view the Legacy Policy page.

The Policies of Eastern Oregon University only contains university policies.  Other authoritative statements of the university (as defined in Board Statement No. 5, Categories of Authoritative Statements), appear in other places.  These include the Statements and Resolutions of the Board of Trustees of Eastern Oregon University, and various university procedures.
