In an effort to promote transparency and engagement in the development of University policy, Southern Oregon University will post proposed policies for at least seven calendar days prior to their adoption by the President.

SOU invites the campus community to submit comments and other helpful feedback on any policy posted here for campus review. This will allow the president of the university to receive and consider the feedback and concerns of the campus prior to considering whether a policy is ready to be implemented at SOU. Comments on any policies posted here can be submitted through this form.

If you are an SOU campus community member and you would like to be notified whenever a policy is posted for review, please join the Policy Notifications mailing list and you will receive a notification email whenever a policy is posted on this page for campus comment.
