Revised Identification System for Board Policies

In June, 2019, UBC approved an updated naming and numbering system for policies approved by the Board of Governors.

UBC has a large number of Board policies currently in place. Our former identification system assigned a title and number to each policy, with no particular meaning ascribed to the numbers used.

The new identification system categorizes the policies according to subject matter, and uses a combination of letters and numbers to indicate the subject matter of each policy.

The Proposed System contains seven categories with each Policy number having two parts, as follows: Part 1 is an alpha code composed of two letters indicating the Policy category; and Part 2 is a digit assigned to each Policy in a specific category in chronological order based on the date the Policy was created, from oldest to most recent.
