The UAF Chancellor is authorized by the University of Alaska President and Board of Regents to implement rules and procedures as necessary to, among other things, promote operational efficiency, support the university’s mission, and reduce operational risks. A UAF policy must comply with Board of Regents’ policies and University regulations. In the event they would ever conflict, the order of priority is: BOR policies, university regulations, UAF policies.
The UAF Chancellor’s Cabinet is in the process of evaluating existing policies according to the Process for the Approval, Revision or Rescission of UAF Policies. Policies that cabinet deems to be obsolete or unnecessary may be rescinded; policies that should be retained may be revised; new policies may be adopted. Policies will be formally adopted using a consistent format and the final, approved policy will be posted to this webpage.
Who can propose a new UAF policy, revisions to an existing policy, or the rescission of a policy?
Faculty and staff employed through the UAF system, students enrolled at UAF, UAF governance bodies, and standing or ad hoc UAF advisory committees may propose the adoption, revision, or rescission of a UAF policy by following the procedures described in the process discussed above.
