University Policy Office (UPO)


Welcome to the University Policy Office (UPO)

Western University (WesternU) policies and procedures (P&Ps) are written expressions of the administration philosophy and direction. P&Ps are established to provide guidance and assistance to the campus community in the conduct of University affairs. Matters dealing solely with the activities of a single organization unit or function are normally not covered by a general policy and procedure of the University, but are instead covered in the detailed operating systems and procedures for the specific College or department.

The P&P website available on our intranet contains the principal P&Ps that guide WesternU community in the pursuit of the University’s mission. P&Ps constitute a living document and are subject to change at any time by WesternU Administration and/or the Board of Trustees.

University’s P&Ps are critical resources for workplace learning and performance needs. Our policies refer to the principles and methods, whether formalized, authorized, or documented, that enable the individuals affiliated with an organization to perform in a predictable, repeatable, and consistent way.

If you are new to this Web site, please visit the Orientation and Training area for instructions.
