Getting Started

What is the KU Policy Library?

The KU Policy Library is the official repository for all policies at the University of Kansas. By having the policies stored and made available in one online location it becomes easier for users to find the information they need. In addition to this, links to the policies and policy-related documents become easier to maintain and are less likely to break in the future.

Obtaining contributor access to add and edit documents within the Policy Library

Submit your request for contributor access to the Policy Library via our online form. Please specify the KU unit for which you will be adding and editing policy documents, as well as the name of your supervisor.

Logging into the Policy Library

Open your web browser and navigate to policy.ku.edu. Log into the Content Management System (CMS) by clicking on the red KU Directory link at the top right of the page.

At the bottom right of the box that appears, select “KU Users”.

How to log in

Using the Policy Development Template

As you begin to draft your policy, you may find it helpful to use the Policy Development Template as a guide. Available for Lawrence and reporting units, KUMC and reporting units, and University-wide, the Word template has been designed to closely match the order and the content fields of the online policy entry form. Once your policy content has been finalized and the draft has gone through the appropriate review processes, vetting by stakeholders, and final approval, you will be able to easily transfer the policy content from your draft straight into the Policy Library via the policy entry form.
