About University Policy Unit (UPU)


Taking account of audit, regulatory, and accreditation requirements, as well as risk management concerns, the University recognizes the need to issue standardized policy documents. we are gradually moving policies found in other forms such as memorandums, manuals, and unwritten practices into official and formally documented policies. Given the large numbers of policies that need to be addressed in this process, priority for selecting which policies are processed first is determined by the University Executives Officers at the University Executive meetings upon recommendation from different University units including the NEASC Accreditation Steering Committee.

The UPU is mandated to provide support for University units to develop policies, to manage the process of policy development, and to manage promulgated policies.

Currently the University Policy Unit is headed by the Associate VP for IT and Research, Dr Tajje-eddine Rachidi
