University Policies

Policies issued by the Kettering Board of Trustees and the President regulate the conduct of University activity to serve the interests of the University and its faculty, staff, and students in carrying out its missions.

Compliance with the requirements of University policy is a condition of enrollment for University students and of employment for members of the faculty and staff.  Violations of University policy can lead to disciplinary action including, in appropriate cases, expulsion of students or discharge from employment for members of the faculty and staff.  It is therefore important that all members of the faculty and staff, and all members of the student body, are aware of the requirements of applicable University policies.

The numbered policies cited in this section include policies established by the President under delegated executive authority or mandated by virtue of Board of Trustees policy or state/federal legislation.  These policies are maintained by the Office of the President and are subject to revision from time-to-time.
