ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES MANUAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE(APPMADC)
Membership of (APPMADC)
The chair of the committee
shall be appointed by the executive vice president and provost.
University Councils, committees, and units authorized by the University Constitution and Bylaws to initiate policies and procedures that wish to have new or revised policies and/or procedures included in the University Academic Policies and Procedures Manual (APPM) shall submit them for review by the committee and the provost. Policies that derive from some external mandate (e.g., federal or state law, or regulations of the Illinois Board of Higher Education or governing board) shall indicate that source.
The committee and the provost shall determine, in accordance with the inclusion criteria, whether policies and/or procedures will be included in the APPM. If the decision is positive, the new or revised policies and/or procedures will be included in the APPM, and all offices and units on the distribution list for the APPM will receive copies of the new or revised material as soon as possible. If the decision is negative, the committee may suggest alternative means of disseminating the information. Policy-making bodies may also decide to delete policies; proposed deletions from the APPM should likewise be submitted to the committee.
If the committee feels that a particular policy action represents a major policy change, and it has come from a unit that does not regularly report its actions to the University Council, the committee may refer the material to the executive secretary of the University Council for a determination of whether University Council review should occur before inclusion in the APPM. The criteria for inclusion in the Academic Policies and Procedures Manual (APPM) are as follows: Information to be included should relate primarily to such academic matters (including personnel matters, exclusive of civil service) as might arise in the conduct of the daily business of academic departments and other units. Moreover, the materials included in the APPM should not duplicate material available in substantially the same form in the NIU Constitution and Bylaws, the NIU Business Procedures Manual, the NIU graduate and undergraduate catalogs, or the regulations of the NIU governing board or the Illinois Board of Higher Education.
