Policy Development at KPU

Policy Protocol

The "Policy Protocol", also known as Policy GV2, Protocol for the Development of University Policies and related Procedures, were approved by the Board of Governors on May 25, 2022 with Senate's advice on April 25, 2022. The Policy and Procedure became effective on September 1, 2022.

The Policy Protocol provides the University Community, Board of Governors, Senate and the President with a consistent process for reviewing, developing, amending and eliminating Policies and Procedures at KPU. It provides current students, faculty, staff, Board Members and other members of the university with a set of policy guidelines that will assist in ensuring compliance with legal and other regulatory requirements, managing risk, achieving the University's mission, enhancing operational efficiencies and setting appropriate standards, restraints and expected behaviours.  The process is thorough and solicits feedback from the University community, allowing for greater transparency in KPU's overall policy development and approval process.
