Welcome to the St. Edward's University Policy Website

At St. Edward's, policies serve to clarify the institution's expectations of its community, mitigate institutional risk, enhance efficiency, support the university's compliance with laws and regulations, and connect the university's mission to the everyday actions of its community. 

The purpose of the policy website is to ensure faculty, staff, and students have ready access to university policies and information about the policy development process. It is the responsibility of the St. Edward’s community, including faculty, staff, and students, to familiarize themselves with these policies and comply with the University policies that affect them.

Policy Index

To promote effective communication and improve access to the university’s policies, we are currently working to develop a policy index.  Thank you for your patience as we complete this work.
