This policy describes the numbering system used in the "Ohio University Policy Manual," so that new policy statements may be assigned numbers that are consistent with those already in use, and so that people wishing to find the policy statement that addresses a particular concern can more readily find it.
The policy numbering system will be a five-digit number consisting of a two-digit general classification number and a three-digit index number, separated by a period, in the form, "XX.YYY," with leading zeros for each part, as needed.
Senate Bill 3, effective September 17, 2014, requires that Ohio university rules be published both on the institution's web site (e.g., this manual), and as part of the Administrative Code. There is a direct mapping between the policy number and the Administrative Code number; the primary differences are that the Administrative Code number includes a prefix that is unique to Ohio university, and that leading zeros are less available in the Administrative Code system. For example, our "Policy 03.004" will be identified as "rule 3337-3-04 of the Administrative Code"; our "Policy 41.125" will be identified as "rule 3337-41-125 of the Administrative Code"; etc. (In some contexts, the Administrative Code's rule number may have additional segments between the "3337-" and the last two segments that are derived from our policy number). Although the number of digits displayed within the Administrative Code is not always five, the numerical values do match.
The "Administrative Policy Manual," the "Faculty Handbook," and the "Student Code of Conduct" are distinct documents: each has its own formal review and approval process, and none is part of either of the others.
Some issues are more appropriately addressed within the "Faculty Handbook", or the "Student Code of Conduct," rather than as part of this policy manual; other issues are best addressed here; and some issues will be addressed in more than one of those locations.
In order to facilitate publication of all three types of rules as part of the Administrative Code, while preventing the ambiguity that would result from numbering collisions among them, several general classification numbers are "reserved": they will not be assigned to any administrative policy, to ensure that their corresponding numbers within the Administrative Code are available for publication of faculty and student rules; see parts (D) and (H) of this policy.
Numbers will be assigned to new policy statements by the office of legal affairs.
The basic general classifications and subject matter areas within these classifications will be as shown in the rest of this policy.
Examples include the following:
Space and facilities usage
Harassment and professional conduct
Arts and sciences
Health sciences and professions
Access to public and private information
Registration, drops, and withdrawals
Group insurance and workers' compensation
Assistance and development programs for employees
Holidays and vacations
Other leaves of absence and accommodations
Compensation, rewards, and recognition
Records and information services
Workplace and occupational health and safety
Grants and contracts
