MacEwan University establishes academic, administrative and governance policy documents to advance the University’s mission, core values and strategic direction; promote operational efficiency and effectiveness; mitigate or manage institutional risk; comply with University, legal, regulatory and other requirements; set behavioural expectations across the University community; and communicate roles and responsibilities.

The university’s Policy Document Framework centralizes the oversight and coordination of policy document development and approval within the university and sets out roles, responsibilities and procedures associated with policy document development, review and approval.

General Faculties Council is responsible for the review and final approval of proposed academic policies. The Board of Governors is responsible for the review and final approval of proposed administrative and governance policies.
