UTS Policy

What are policies?

At UTS, policies are high-level authoritative statements that set out governing principles and objectives to guide University practice and decision-making. UTS policies are mandatory for the people and areas they apply to.

UTS policies are managed by the University's Policy Framework, and are developed to:

  • formally establish the University’s position on an issue or subject
  • support staff in making decisions
  • provide transparency
  • implement principles of good governance
  • be explicit about behavioural expectations and conduct.

For information on developing, reviewing or maintaining your policies, contact the Senior Advisor Governance and Policy.

Policies are UTS are undergoing change as part of the Unleash UTS initiative. For more information, see Unleash UTS policy simplification project (staff only).

All current and enforceable UTS policies are required to be published on this UTS policy website, which is the authorised electronic repository.

Policies are found via three indexes:

The search option available on some UTS websites can also be used to search for policies.

Policy review

As part of the 'Unleash UTS' project, UTS is currently reviewing its suite of governance instruments, including the Standing Delegations of Authority, policies, Vice-Chancellor's directives, codes, charters, strategies and university-level procedures.

Instruments that are under review or scheduled for review are also current and enforceable until they are replaced, updated or rescinded.
