University Executive Directives

University Executive Directives (UEDs) are guiding principles that promote consistency and operational efficiency, enhance our mission, mitigate significant organizational risk and apply to the University at large. UEDs may provide guidance to the campus on compliance with relevant laws, regulations, or CSU policies. They are approved by the campus President and change infrequently. The approval process for UEDs is rigorous, involving campus consultation and Vice Presidential approval prior to submission to the President. UEDs have the highest authority level of any campus policy and are effective immediately after the campus consultative process and upon the signature of the President.

All University Executive Directives are listed in order by year and list number. For example in UED 15-40 Smoke-Free Campus, the “15” reflects the year the UED was approved and the number “40” is the recent listed number of the UED to date.

Below you will find the most recent up-to-date University Executive Directives.
