Relationship between SPGs and other campus or local policy
To help build awareness of and promote compliance with university policy, an email group was created so members of the university community could choose to be updated on new, changed, and decommissioned policies (SPGs). This is a self-opt-in email group that will receive a quarterly email with a list of policy that changed. Emails will be sent in January, April, July, and October.
