001 ePolicy Manual Defined
Approved by the Board of Trustees in September 2005, the Troy University ePolicy Manual is a web-based interactive database. It contains all approved policies of Troy University. The policies are arranged in a logical format allowing the reader to see categories and or use its search capability to find policies based on key words. The address of the site is located on the home page of the Troy University website: http://www.troy.edu
With the creation of “One Great University” the Troy University System comprised of three separately accredited institutions becomes Troy University, one institution, on August 1, 2005. The transition of three policy sets and the need to keep these updated for campuses and sites across the nation and around the world, necessitated a faster more reliable and convenient way to create, amend and have available university policy.
002 How the ePolicy Manual is Updated and Maintained
Simplicity is the watchword of this manual. Maintained by the Executive Assistant to the Chancellor at Troy University, the site is constantly monitored and when changes are approved they are inserted. The policy for how this is accomplished can be found in section 100 Policy. Questions about the manual can be emailed to the Executive Assistant (firstname.lastname@example.org).
003 Use of the ePolicy Manual
The ePolicy Manual is the designated depository for university policy. Any statements used in institutional handbooks, the university bulletin, brochures, articles, and any other publication or digital display of the approved policies of Troy University must use the policy as stated in this manual.
