POLICIES
Policies are statements of institutional positions on various topics. They meet criteria in one of the following categories:

1.  Supports the college's mission and values
2.  Ensures the institution's compliance with external mandates
3.  Assures efficient use of resources
4.  Reduces risks
5.  Promotes consistency by those acting for the institution

College policies impact the entire institution and their applicability is not limited to a single institutional unit. They are developed to guide institutional decisions or actions.

PROCEDURES
Procedures are written statements of specific processes initiated to implement a policy. Procedures are subject to regular change to improve the manner in which a policy is administered.
Procedures are not policies. Procedures don't tell us what must be done, but how something must be done. Procedures are the methods for implementing policies.
