Policy Tool Kit

The NWACC Policy Office is responsible for assisting in the development, revision, approval stages and maintenance of system-wide policies. If you have questions about the policy development process or need help finding a policy, contact: Lynda Lloyd, Director of Institutional Policy.

The Policy Tool Kit offers information and resources for those responsible for developing and maintaining system-wide policies. The framework by which system-wide policies are developed, approved and communicated is provided in the Policy on Policy Development.
