College Policy Manual changes (March 11, 2016)

Please be advised that the College is in the midst of a project to rationalize and reorganize College policies. The objectives of this project include:

  • Reducing the number of and content of policies to the minimum necessary to carry out College business in an effective and efficient fashion;
  • Revising policy language, tone, format and accessibility in ways that promote and support employee freedom to act in the achievement of policy objectives; and
  • Making it easier to locate and access a particular College policy.

Until replaced or rescinded, current policies remain accessible through the usual College web pages. When an updated policy (having a new policy number) is posted, the old policy will be removed/rescinded. The policy(ies) noted below have been reformatted, renumbered and re-styled, but do not include any substantive content change from the policy(ies) being replaced unless otherwise noted.

1-G-08: Terms of Reference of College Council.

Rescinded (Jan. 27, 2016)

This policy has been replaced with TOR01: College Council.

2-J-01: Student Work Projects for Third Parties.

Rescinded (Jan. 27, 2016)

The broader focus of policy P207: Employee Ethics includes the focus of this policy so this policy is redundant.

P208: Respectful College Community and Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination.

Reviewed (March 3, 2016)
**Effective: April 1, 2016**

This policy has undergone its annual review, no changes have been made.

Terms of Reference

Current terms of reference (TofR) for College committees are in the process of being removed from College policy and will form a standalone class of College documents. The development and maintenance of committee terms of reference is governed by College Standard STD02: Standards for Committee Terms of Reference. The following TofR are new.

TOR01: College Council.

New (Jan. 27, 2016)

This policy replaces policy 1-G-08. The policy has been updated to reflect changes recommended by College Council (in both April 2015 and January 2016) and converted to the new College terms of reference format and includes minor editing for spelling, grammar, title correction, word order and clarity. It also includes other minor changes to better reflect current practice.

The College Policy Manual is available on the Fanshawe website and Employee Portal. If you have trouble opening any of the files please contact Jackie Gray at 519-452-4430 x4406.
