Transparent, clear, equitable and accessible

UW-Eau Claire is committed to establishing and maintaining institutional best practices. In support of this commitment to conduct the business of the University and its campus community in a consistent and orderly manner, we work to develop practice directives and procedures to make our administrative processes and practices more effective, and so that procedures are understood by the campus community.

Why is this important?

Policies, practice directives and procedures should be fully documented to communicate to employees the desired outcomes of organizational processes and help employees understand their roles and responsibilities within the organization. These documents set the foundation for the consistent and cost-effective meeting of objectives and ensure expectations are clearly communicated. Having written policies, practice directives and procedures establishes a high degree of understanding, cooperation, efficiency, and unity among employees of the organization and minimizes discrepancies based on individual interpretation. 

In the event of employee turnover, the documents provide clearly set expectations to support continuity of operations. The absence of these documents can lead to a gap in controls and cause an institution to fall out of compliance with laws and Board policy. 

Practice Directive & Procedure Development

Practice directive UWEC 1, Practice Directives and Procedures and procedure UWEC 1.A, Practice Directive & Procedure Development form the basis for understanding the reason for and processes associated with practice directives and procedures in the Division of Finance & Administration.

Approved templates for practice directives and procedures are linked below.
