University Policy Database

As a central repository for existing, new and revised policies and guidelines, the NYU Policy Database serves to standardize policy format, eliminate redundancies, improve organization, accessibility, search and navigation functions.

The policies are organized in categories as noted in the menus below. Some policies may be listed in multiple categories. University policies, procedures and guidelines are retained and maintained in this database to guide and inform the University community, including faculty, staff, administration and students.  

This database does not contain an exhaustive list of university policies. For additional information or assistance on how to locate policies, develop new policies, update existing policies, or any other policy related matter, please contact the Office of Compliance and Risk Management at or at 212-998-2265.

IT Policies Updated July 2022

Our Call Monitoring policy has just been updated and re-posted, as always with OGC and NYU IT senior approvals. It is now titled Use of Call Recording and/or Call Monitoring for Customer Service Improvement. The update was necessary in order to present a new recording-monitoring feature and the new attendant requirements. The policy was considerably revised to include requirements for making the request to record and monitor, procedures for plan implementation, information regarding employees who handle calls subject to monitoring, a questionnaire to reference when considering recording or monitoring, a sign-off sheet for the requestor, and sample employee evaluation suggestions.
