The University Manual is a compilation of statutes, policies, procedures, and descriptions that guide the University of Rhode Island in support of its mission.
The Manual is created through the framework of shared governance between the university faculty and administration under the University of Rhode Island Board of Trustees. It is a source of information regarding the structure, rights, regulations, and practices that govern university life. The content of this Manual exists in a dynamic environment and is updated as changes are legislated or issued by presidential administrative action, as appropriate. The Manual is considered to be the official university policy document and, as such, takes precedence over other internal policy statements inconsistent or conflicting with the Manual.
