Frequently Asked Questions
What role do policies fulfill at CSUMB?
Policies are the means for conducting the business of the University and its campus community in a consistent and orderly manner.
What is policy and how does it differ from procedure?
Policy is a set of specific statements of principles or guiding actions that imply clear commitment by the University; statement of values or intent that provides a basis for consistent decision-making and resource allocation selected to guide and determine present and future decisions.
Procedure refers to a series of steps followed in regular order; a particular way of doing something; steps taken to implement policy and operations.
What is the role of the policy facilitator? How does that role differ from the role of the policy developer?
The facilitator is the individual appointed in each Division by the Division Head to represent the Division's policy on the Policy Facilitation Team (a group of individuals from across campus who are responsible for the structural, orderly, timely, and comprehensive development of CSUMB policies) to coordinate, direct, and facilitate the policy development process.
Developers are those individuals working as a team under the leadership of the facilitator, in development of a particular policy.
How do I initiate the process for proposing a policy?
An individual wishing to propose a policy introduces the idea to their facilitator.
Who has final approval on proposed policies?
The President approves policies.
