Southern Oregon University's Policy Repository

This site contains policies with general university application.  A school, college, and/or department may have additional internal guidelines or departmental procedures, and those are not included on this site. Forms associated with particular policies on this site are located on the related department web page.

A note on policy format: In June 2009 the university adopted a standard format for policies. To view the new format template or get help preparing a policy document, click here or on the link to the left.  All new policies will be written in this format and eventually all policies will be revised in this format. For some period of time, both old and new formats will coexist.

The specific procedure for developing and revising SOU policies is described in three documents included in the Policy Templates, Guidelines, and Resources.  A policy review flowchart, additional policy guidelines, and other writing tips are also included.

There are three ways to search for a policy:


  1. View the list of policies within a category/division listed to the left.
  2. Click on the Full Policy Listing to browse all SOU policies and SOU specific OAR's.
  3. Search all the policy documents using key words in the search box below.
