In a continuing effort to ensure transparency and inclusion in everything we do, Franklin & Marshall College has implemented a new College Policy Development and Management policy.
In addition to meeting compliance and risk mitigation obligations, this policy aims to increase knowledge of the College’s standards and expectations and improve confidence and cooperation among campus constituents.
The Committee on College Policy Development (CCPD), which includes a representative group of campus constituents, is charged with shepherding the development of College policies, but the campus community also has a voice as newly created policies will be publicly posted for review and comment prior to final approval. Please review the policy for more information about the process.
Any proposed new policies or policy revisions should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that at the end of the policy there is a Policy Proposal and a Policy Template. One of our goals is to standardize the format of College policies for consistency, so the provided template should be used. The Policy Proposal can be downloaded and completed as a fillable PDF and should be submitted with any proposed new policy. In cases where the submission is a revision of an existing policy, in lieu of the policy proposal you may submit a memo detailing why the policy is being revised and noting any substantive changes.
The official College Policy website also includes a link to a Policy Development training that provides guidance in developing and drafting policies. Policy owners and developers are encouraged to review this training prior to submitting documents to the committee.
The Committee thanks you in advance for helping to protect the integrity of the College’s mission, reputation and operations through the proper development and management of official College policies. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
