Policies define and set a standard for organizational and individual conduct. They also set expectations and requirements for administrative operations, by providing a baseline for departments to follow when conducting the business of the university. Policies ensure a consistent understanding and approach to practices across the university.
As part of our policy development and implementation, the University of Michigan-Dearborn adheres to the University Statement on Stewardship which sets forth the principles for behavior and conduct that all must follow to be an effective steward of the campus's financial, personnel, and business processes.
The University of Michigan-Dearborn leadership not only follows these principles of good and proper stewardship but direct all employees to be knowledgeable and adhere to the stipulated policies in order to ensure effective stewardship of university resources.
