Northeastern Illinois University Policy Library
Northeastern Illinois University's Policy Library was created to allow the University community easy access to University policies, procedures, guidelines and forms. Construction of this site is an ongoing process. Please be aware this site does not contain all University policy information. Individual departments throughout the University may also have internal policies specific to their office.
Policies for Review
As part of the policy development process, the University will post final draft policies to this web page for comments from the University community. The deadline to submit comments is 30 days from the final draft posted date. Please send any questions or comments regarding University policy to email@example.com.
The following policies have been granted an extension to the 30 day public comment period. The public comment period will now end Thursday, January 15, 2015.
If you would like to share your comments/feedback on these, or any of the policies previously posted, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the public comment period is over, the comments and feedback will be considered by the author before final approval by the Policy Working Group. For more information on the University's policy process, please see policy G1.1 Formulation and Issuance of University Policies which can be found under the Governance category in the menu to the left of this page.
