The ETSU Policy Development and Rulemaking Policy governs the policy development process. Any ETSU student or employee who would like to propose a policy should read the Policy Development and Rulemaking Policy. Please note, unit specific rules are different than University Policy as described in Section E of Policy Development and Rulemaking. Recommendations for new or revised unit rules go through the unit’s established procedures for addressing new rules. Unit rules must be consistent with the intent and purpose of University Policies and relevant law.
The following documents will be useful as you move forward through the policy proposal process:
