This is the University of Montana Western's Operating Policy system for the development, identification, distribution, review and revision of operating policies. The policies will offer governing principles that guide action in response to an issue or circumstance likely to surface repeatedly. It will be consistent with relevant federal and state laws, rules and regulations, and the Montana Board of Regents policies and procedures.

In circumstances where no official campus policy is in place the University of Montana Western will follow policy of The University of Montana-Missoula to the extent it agrees with UMW’s procedures.
