Welcome to the University Policy Office (UPO)

The Western University of Health Sciences (WesternU) Policy Office website is the official home of all university policies and procedures (P&P). WesternU has established these policies to support the university’s mission; enhance operational efficiency; governance; and, communicate expectations while reducing institutional risk. Each WesternU campus is responsible for establishing and maintaining additional administrative policies specific to their needs and structure. No College or Operating Unit may adopt a policy or practice that is inconsistent with, or expands any university-wide policy. A College or Operating Unit’s specific policies may be more restrictive.

Policies and procedures constitute a living document and the university reserves the right to revise a policy at any time.

Each member of the WesternU community is responsible for familiarizing themselves with, and adhering to these policies and procedures.

Mission Statement:

To provide efficient and effective tools for the creation and development of P&P that will clearly define how WesternU does business.
