Office of General Counsel Policies & Guidelines

Policies and Guidelines

The Board of Regents has established policies and guidelines that are implemented on a system-wide basis. Both policies and guidelines work their way through the appropriate sub-council or sub-councils, then go to the presidents council for approval. Approval at that level is all that is required to establish guidelines, which generally describe the process of policy implementation. Policies themselves must go on to the full board for consideration after being approved by the presidents council.

All TBR Institutions are required to follow system policies and guidelines and incorporate them into their campus policies and guidelines. As the need arises, policies and guidelines are updated and re-posted to the website.
