Administrative Policy Process Changes

The University Committee on Administrative Policy has made two changes to improve transparency and ensure that all constituents feel heard. Previously, all signed comments received email responses from the committee and anonymous comments’ responses were posted to the JCU Faculty & Staff Shared Drive. Now all comments and responses will be posted in the Shared Drive. As we move forward, commenters will have the choice to include their name or not on the public post. Older comments have been anonymized unless the commenter has given explicit permission to post their name.

The second change concerns the policy approval timeline. Policy approval votes will now typically take place at the meeting after responses to comments are approved. The vote will take place no sooner than one week after responses are sent to commenters.
