Once the Committee on Administrative Policies has drafted, considered, and/or reviewed a policy, it is shared with the Senior Leadership Team for comments and questions.  Afterward, it is posted for public comment for 30 days.  Following the comment period, the Committee will consider all feedback received and respond to all signed feedback, possibly make changes to the policies, and vote to formally approve them.  

All comments are anonymous unless the comment-writer signs the comment by including identifying information.
