About Policies

If you have questions about the policy development process or need help finding a policy, please contact the University Policy Office.


The Purdue University Policy Office will model best practices for policy development in higher education.


In support of Purdue's mission, the University Policy Office works cooperatively with stakeholders to:

  • Ensure clarity, coherence and communication of system-wide policies and standards.
  • Guide policy owners through the policy development process.
  • Maintain an easily-accessible central repository for system-wide and West Lafayette campus policies and standards.

Comprehensive Policy Review

In April 2013, the EPRG endorsed a plan to review the 127 system-wide administrative policies in place at that time with a focus on scrutinizing their consistency, relevance and reasonableness. A report on the review details the process used to conduct the review and outlines the recommendations that resulted.
