UNE Policy Library Glossary

The UNE Policy Library Glossary is a list of terms and their standard definitions for policies, procedures and guidelines.  Our Glossary is currently being developed and will be available for use in late 2017.  During the Glossary's development, please rely on the definitions of terms located at the bottom of each UNE Policy document.  We will advise the University community as soon as the Glossary takes effect.

Please contact the Policy and Governance Unit if you require further information.
