KSU Institutional Policies

At Kennesaw State University, institutional policies are published in the Policy Portal and the University Handbook.  This website serves the primary functions:

  • Resource for policy owners in developing new policies, revising existing policies, and/or conducting the annual update/review of institutional policies.
  • Central repository for institutional policies.

KSU uses a Policy Tracking Tool to ensure that institutional and curricular policies go through the shared governance review process and to collect feedback, which then gets shared with the Provost and/or President with the final approval authority. Institutional policies undergo an initial review by the Policy Process Council, then are routed to the Faculty Senate, Academic Deans Council, Chairs and Directors Assembly (CDA), and Staff Senate.

Additionally, institutional policies go through the process depicted in the figure below.
