About and Mission

The University Policy Committee (UPC) is a standing committee authorized by the President’s Cabinet to review all university-wide policies that require the President’s signature.

About the UPC

The UPC works in partnership with individuals from campus units who are developing university-wide policy to ensure that proposed policies are needed and are aligned with institutional mission, goals, and priorities. The committee reviews policy drafts to ensure that they are concise, consistent in format and scope, and accessible. The UPC also seeks campus input prior to recommending a policy to the President for signature.

This website is intended to serve as a resource for the development and review of proposed policies and does not contain a comprehensive compilation of all university policies.

Mission

The University Policy Committee (UPC) is a standing committee of University faculty and staff authorized by the President's Cabinet to review all university-wide policies that require the President’s signature. The UPC works in partnership with policy owners to:

  1. ensure policies are needed and aligned with institutional mission, goals, and priorities;
  2. review subsequent policy drafts to ensure policies are concise, consistent in format and scope, and easy to understand; and to
  3. seek campus input prior to recommending a policy to the President for signature.

The UPC meets regularly to review and recommend university-wide institutional policy. As a service to the UNLV community, the UPC will oversee the creation and maintenance of a centralized, searchable web-based policy repository. This repository will contain proposed university policies posted by the UPC for public comment, university policies recommended by the UPC and signed by the President, and all unit-level policies submitted for inclusion by departments, colleges and other institutional units.
