Policy Manual

The Policy Manual is the official repository for university policy documents at Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE). The Policy Manual contains university policies, procedures, standards, and associated documents—referred to collectively as university policy documents—that have been approved by CUE’s statutory and delegated approval authorities.

The university policy documents in the Policy Manual constitute official university records. While these records can be downloaded or printed for convenience, CUE members must ensure they are in compliance with the most up-to-date version in the Policy Manual. 

The Policy Manual is maintained by the Office of the University Secretariat. Questions related to university policy documents can be sent to policy@concordia.ab.ca.
