Gain a broad understanding of the policy-making process in higher education

Collaborate with experts from Cornell and other institutions this fall as you learn how to centralize and formalize your institution's administrative policy process.

During this intensive two-day program, you'll

  • Examine how Cornell's internationally recognized policy office writes and implements policy
  • Explore how to apply best practices to your own institution
  • Learn how to create policies, from beginning to end, using a policy-development template

During presentations, panel and round-table discussions, and an informal reception, you'll have plenty of opportunities to share your policy concerns, get answers to your policy questions, and network with other attendees.

And you'll take away concrete ideas and tools for justifying, creating, enhancing, and implementing policy at your own organization.

Program benefits

  • Get guidance on how these elements could be applied to the needs and realities of your institution.
