Welcome to the University of Dayton's Policy Home Page

The University of Dayton's policies reflect our philosophies, values and mission and provide guidance for decision-making and enforcement.

This site serves as a repository for policies that impact our community on a University-wide level.

However, policies that apply to the broader Dayton community and serve to inform the general public will be freely accessible through this site. All content on this Policy website is managed by the Office of Legal Affairs. 

The University reserves the right to amend or revoke its policies at any time. General questions regarding the University's policies can be directed to the University Policy Coordinating Committee via the Contact tab.

University Policy Coordinating Committee

Appointed by the President in May 2010, the University Policy Coordinating Committee (UPCC) serves as an advisory group to the President and the President's Council on all matters related to policies.

In addition to reviewing all existing University policies, the UPCC develops policies required by law, administers a formal process for proposing and approving policies, assists in communicating and enforcing policies,and ensures policies are consistent with the mission of the University of Dayton and its Catholic, Marianist values.

Membership of the UPCC includes a representative from each Vice Presidential area and the Academic Senate. Responsibility for compliance with policies resides with individual Deans and Vice Presidents and their designees.
