At UTS, policies are high-level authoritative statements that set out governing principles and objectives to guide university practice and decision-making.
Policies apply to the university as a whole and comply with all relevant legislation and rules. Not all activities at UTS need to be covered by a policy. University-wide guidelines, statements, procedures and other categories of documents may be appropriate.
UTS policies cover complaints, conduct and ethics, development activities, equity, facilities and environment, financial management, governance, health, information management, intellectual property, learning and teaching, research matters, safety, security, staffing and student matters.
UTS policies are mandatory for the people and areas they cover.
Policies that apply to students are also listed on UTS student policies.
