Policies and Procedures at New Mexico Tech

This webpage is under development and is undergoing regular changes and review (most recent update: September 3, 2014).

 

Policies and Procedures at New Mexico Tech

New Mexico Tech Policies help to ensure coordinated compliance with applicable laws and regulations, to promote operational efficiencies, to enhance the Institute mission, or to reduce institutional risk.

Additionally, New Mexico Tech Policies help to ensure integrity and other fundamental institutional values that define the vision of New Mexico Tech, such as academic freedom, freedom of expression, shared governance, maintaining collegiality and citizenship, and upholding accountability for professionalism and diplomacy among administration, faculty, staff, students, other constituents and maintaining accountability to our accrediting and regulating organizations.

New Mexico Tech Procedures are the methods for implementing our New Mexico Tech Policies.

All Regent Policies and Administrative Policies are found on this webpage. Faculty, staff and student orientation directs any new members to the New Mexico Tech community to this webpage. It is the responsibility of the faculty, staff or students to familiarize themselves with the policies and procedures that apply to them.

If anyone has any questions regarding policy development, please contact Valerie Kimble at (575) 835-5606 or vkimble@admin.nmt.edu

2) Limitations on time period – page 8
3) Contents of investigation report – page 15

Policy Types

 

Board of Regents Policies

Board of Regents policies are administrative policies that have been approved by the Board of Regents. The President determines whether or not an administrative policy requires Board of Regents' approval.

Board of Regents policies have institution-wide application and are intended to be enduring, rather than a response to a particular issue. Board of Regents policies help ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations, enhance the university's mission, promote operational efficiencies, and reduce institutional risk.

Administrative Policies

Administrative policies, also called university policies, are needed to operate New Mexico Tech in compliance with state and federal legislation, such as campus health and safety standards, records retention, financial operations, and rules governing student behavior on campus, and academic procedures or standards.

The scope of university policies is extensive, ranging from rules governing the university as a whole, to individual departments or offices, including those off-campus.

 

Faculty Senate and Academic Policy

As stated in the Faculty Senate Standing Rules, "The Faculty Senate of the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology exists to set policy relating to academic matters, including admissions, academic standards, curricula and graduation requirements for both the undergraduate and graduate programs, and to recommend the conferral of earned degrees to the President."

The Faculty Senate approves academic policies or curricular changes that have institutional impact after they have been vetted through and voted on by the Council of Chairs for undergraduate student academic policies and vetted through and voted on by the Graduate Council for graduate student academic policies. Academic policies that are institutional – apply to all students – are vetted through and voted on by the Council of Chairs.

Before voting on an academic policy or curricular change that has institutional impact, the Council of Chairs and the Graduate Council must follow the procedures within the Policy Development, Amendment and Rescindment Policy and Procedure.

After the approval by the Faculty Senate, the academic policies must be approved by the NMIMT President, after which they become Administrative Policies and are recorded in the New Mexico Tech Course Catalog. 

If the President deems that the policy requires Board of Regents approval, this approval and adoption by the Board of Regents must occur before the policy is recorded in the New Mexico Tech Course Catalog.

 

Policies and procedures are arranged alphabetically by Policy title and are listed under the Office of the President and the office of the Vice President or Division Head that is responsible for (the sponsor of) the policy and procedure).
