Preamble

This document is the handbook of the Department of Management & Information Systems (M&IS), as approved by the full-time faculty of that department and the Dean of the College of Business Administration. It, in combination with the University Policy Register (UPR), the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), and College of Business Handbook (CBH), specifies as clearly and simply as possible the policies by which the Department is governed.

This handbook is designed to address matters of central importance to the faculty. In order to reflect changes in department, college, university, or other policies, the Department, through the Faculty Advisory Committee (FAC), may initiate alterations or amendments to this handbook subject to the guidelines of the UPR and CBA. All proposed changes are subject to the approval of the Dean of the College of Business Administration.  This handbook contains information on how this Department implements policies from all levels.

In all matters, the University Policy Register, the applicable Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) and the College of Business Administration Graduate Handbook take precedence over this handbook.
