I am pleased to present the Institution-wide Policy and Procedure Manual for Paine College. Many of you have been a part of the process of organizing existing policies and developing additional policies to ensure the efficient management of College affairs. All members of the Paine College Community (faculty, staff and students) are bound by the policies contained in these volumes. The policies exist in seven volumes under the following headings:

The Policy Working group exists for the sole purpose of collecting, reviewing and making any changes to the volumes that may be necessary. The Policy Working Group membership consists of a member from each of the functional units of the College. Any comments regarding any part of the policy manual should be reported to the appropriate member of the Policy Working Group.

Although all members of the community are bound by the policies in this manual the Policy Working Group will receive all questions and/or comments for consideration. Thank you in advance for your unrelenting cooperation as we continue to move Paine College to its rightful place as a premier liberal arts institution of higher education in the region.
