Board Policies and Administrative Procedures

Policies and procedures at Northeast are designed for general information. They are not intended to create a binding agreement or contract between Northeast Community College and its employees or students. While the college intends to continue in effect the foregoing policies, procedures, and benefits, it reserves the right to make changes in content or applications as it deems advisable. These changes may be implemented whether or not they have been communicated, printed, or substituted on the Northeast Community College website.

In December 2021, the Board of Governors adopted new board policies which include:

  • Ends Policies - What good or benefit the organization is to produce, for which recipients, at what worth. (Why does the College exist?)
  • Executive Limitations Policies - Constraints on executive authority that establish the boundaries of prudence and ethics within which all executive activity and decisions must take place. (What is the broadest level of rules the President must comply with while operating the College?)
  • Governance Process Policies - Specification of how the Board conceptualizes, carries out, and monitors its own task. (How does the Board govern itself?)
  • Board-President Delegation Policies - How authority is delegated, and how is its proper use monitored, including the President's role, authority, and accountability. (What authority is delegated to the President and how does the Board monitor his/her work?)

These policies will eventually replace all previous policies identified as BP-xxxx.x that are in existence under 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, and 7000. As the Board and Standing Committees work through revisions to existing procedures, there will be some duplication between E, EL, GP, BPD Policies and BP Policies.
