The President is responsible for approving institutional policy and for delegating policy-making authority, when appropriate, to other administrators by written correspondences, a copy of which shall be maintained in the President's files and a copy forwarded to the General Counsel.  The President may revoke a delegation of policy-making authority, or disapprove any institutional policy at any time.  Delegations of policy-making authority should explicitly limit the authority granted to areas affected or by subject matter.  The President shall also notify the Vice Presidents and Provost of any new or amended policies relevant to their responsibilities as soon as possible.  Policies implemented through delegated authority may not be contrary to any policy approved by the President directly.  A University-wide policy that affects multiple areas of the University under the supervision of different Cabinet members must be approved by the President to ensure policies are consistent.
