Search Campus Policy Handbooks

The primary purpose of the University Policy Handbook Index is to assist users who are exploring the creation / revision of Conflict Resolution policies at their institution. The index does this by providing access to examples from other institutions. You can search all of the Policy handbooks in the index or narrow your search to a category that matches the audience you are creating / revising a policy for. The index is not limited in any way to Conflict Resolution related policies, but rather attempts to index all the web-accessible handbooks at major institutions in the United States. Thus it should prove useful in a broad range of circumstances. See below for more details on the current scope of our handbook collection.
