Note: Shortly after the 2017 New Faculty Orientation, the University retired GURU and launched a new, comprehensive portal featuring its policies in several categories.
Several policies also have new names and online locations, and so those are not reflected in the presentations archived here. Notable among them is AC23 (formerly HR23): Promotion and Tenure Policies and Regulations. You can find all Academic Policies and others here.
