College policies are statements of institutional positions on issues and both reflect and support the College's mission and values. While developed primarily to guide institutional decisions or actions, they also may articulate the institution's compliance with external mandates, encourage efficient use of resources, or promote consistency by those acting for the institution. College policies impact the entire institution and their applicability is not limited to a single institutional unit. College procedures are statements of specific processes necessary to implement policy. College policies and procedures implementation requires final approval of the President.
