    What role do University Executive Directives fulfill at SFSU?

    University Executive Directives (UEDs) are guiding principles that express the institutional culture, goals, and philosophy of the University. UEDs promote consistency and operational efficiency, enhance our mission, and mitigate significant organizational risk. They are approved by the University President, are non-negotionable, and change infrequently.
     

    How do I find the University Executive Directives I am looking for?

    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.

     

    What role do Delegations of Authority fulfill at SFSU?

    The University must act through authorized individuals. The President or Vice President may choose to retain authorities and to delegate other authorities to executive officers, which essentially flow down through the University's chain of command.

  • License Agreement Enforcement Practice

    Enforcing the residential License Agreement is a component of customer service.  Enforcement practices are an administrative process upholding a legal agreement between the University (HDCS) and its residents.  This administrative process is governed by several federal and state statutes as well as campus policies.  As the property is part of an educational environment, the overall philosophy is to be educational whenever possible in resolving concerns.
