The University reserves the right to amend or revoke its policies at any time.

University Policy Coordinating Committee

Appointed by the President in May 2010, the University Policy Coordinating Committee (UPCC) serves as an advisory group to the President and the President's Council on all matters related to policies.

In addition to reviewing all existing University policies, the UPCC develops policies required by law, administers a formal process for proposing and approving policies, assists in communicating and enforcing policies,and ensures policies are consistent with the mission of the University of Dayton and its Catholic, Marianist values.

Membership of the UPCC includes a representative from each Vice Presidential area and the Academic Senate. Responsibility for compliance with policies resides with individual Deans and Vice Presidents and their designees.
