Policy Development and Lifecycle Process
Recognizing the need for a common, consistent, and transparent process for Institute policies to be thoroughly reviewed, maintained, and made available to the campus community, Georgia Tech has adopted an Institute Policy Development and Life Cycle Process to promote policy awareness, compliance, and accountability.
|Step 1. Policy Proposal|
The Policy Steering Committee determines if the policy is Academic or Administrative, and if there is a need for further review.
|Faculty Handbook||Student Regulation||Administrative|
|Step 2. Policy Draft and Initial Review||Policy Drafted By:||Faculty Member or Committee||Policy Owner||Policy Owner|
|Initial Reviewer:||Faculty Statutes Committee||Student Regulations Committee||Policy Steering Committee|
|Step 3. Final Review and Approval||Where it is Posted:||General Faculty Agenda||Academic Senate Agenda||Policy Library|
|Approval Body:||General Faculty||Academic Senate||President’s Cabinet|
|Step 4. Policy Publication|
Once a policy is approved it is published online in the Policy Library and announced in the Daily Digest/Whistle.
