02.001 Policy Development and Definitions
This policy was revised to update the guidance for interpreting policies. Specifically, the list of terms which impose a duty ("must," "shall," etc.) and those which create a discretionary authority ("should," "may," etc.) were expanded. Also, global definitions of terms which are used throughout the UNT Policy Manual have been established in this policy, negating the need to redefine the terms repeatedly. Lastly, other language was expanded and clarified, including terminology around the objective to minimize the amount of procedure in UNT policies.
