The process of developing Georgia Regents University (GRU) policies is well underway, and many have been finalized, but the effort is far from complete. Therefore, as we move forward with a consolidated university, we should keep the following guidelines in mind:
If there is an approved GRU policy, then it should be followed and it supersedes all previous policies;
If there are two, follow both of them where they are consistent. If they are inconsistent, then the EVP-Provost should be consulted, and she is empowered to decide which policy should be followed.
No one should be disciplined or judged non-compliant for following any policy from our predecessor institutions that is not yet replaced with a GRU policy.
