IV. Regulation Statement

A. Board Policy

1. Definition

Board Policy represents “legislative policy” as expressed in the official minutes of the Board of Trustees in the form of broad authorization or prohibition. A Board Policy is a written general statement approved by the Board of Trustees regarding the delegation to the President of broad authority to take discretionary action in a specific area. A Board policy normally concerns itself with general outlines of guidance which transcend time or personality; hence, it changes rarely. A Board Policy will be binding on the part of the Administration and will be preceded by the word, “shall.”

2. Initiation

Any member of the Board of Trustees, student body, faculty, staff or administration, and the appropriate internal College Governance mechanism, may initiate a policy recommendation or revision at any time by submitting it, with rationale, in writing to the College President.

3. Review and Recommendation

The President may request further Governance review; review by an Advisory or Ad Hoc Committee and/or the President’s Cabinet. Input from the Board, faculty, staff, and student governance bodies will be sought for all significant policy changes or additions. Policy recommendations will be reviewed by the President, who will recommend approval to the Board, as appropriate.

4. Approval for Submission to the Board

Approval of a proposed Board Policy for submission to the Board will be by the President.

5. Lodging of Proposed Board Policy

After a proposed Policy has been approved by the President, and having been recommended to the Board for adoption, after appropriate discussion by the Board, it will be lodged at a meeting of the Board of Trustees.

6. Adoption by Board of Trustees and Distribution

After a Policy has been adopted by the Board of Trustees, the Executive Assistant to the President will be responsible for distribution.

College Regulations represent “administrative policy” and indicate the authority delegated by the President for the day-to-day operation of the College.

A College Regulation is a written, specific statement relative to the delegation by the President to an administrative area the responsibility for implementing Board Policy in a particular set of circumstances.

A College Regulation will be binding on the administration and will be preceded by the word “will,” and could include systematic steps to describe the methods, processes, and forms to be used in the accomplishment of tasks.

2. Initiation

Any member of the student body, faculty, staff or administration may initiate a proposed College Regulation or a revision of an existing College Regulation at any time by submitting a request in writing to the President. Proposals for regulation revision from College Governance will be forwarded to the President by the appropriate College Governance mechanism.

3. Review and Recommendation

College Regulations created and/or revised through the internal College Governance procedure must be reviewed by the appropriate Officer of the College. The President may request further Governance review; review by an Advisory or Ad Hoc Committee, and/or the President’s Cabinet.
