Policy Statements

Policy Statements are created for the purpose of institutional governance by way of establishing standard procedures for the operation of the university. Policy Statements that apply to LSU Eunice serve to implement or interpret various laws, rules, regulations, policies, and/or to reflect the university’s chosen method of managing its affairs. Policy Statements at LSU Eunice are not binding for other LSU institutions. They are, however, subordinate to LSU policies issued as Permanent Memoranda from the President, to the Bylaws and Regulations of the LSU Board of Supervisors, and to state and federal regulations and statutes. Policy Statements may also be issued to interpret and implement Permanent Memoranda and Bylaws & Regulations of the Board or pursuant to the requirements of state and federal law. The procedures for creating, updating, or rescinding LSU Eunice Policy Statements is located on the Policy Protocol Page.

General Policy and Disclaimer

LSU Eunice takes due care to assure that Policy Statements, when issued, comply with applicable controlling laws, rules, and regulations. However, it is recognized that changes in such laws, rules, and regulations may result in all or a portion of a Policy Statement becoming null or incorrect until a necessary revision is made. In such cases, those portions of a Policy Statement that are contrary to or in conflict with any controlling law, rule, or regulation are invalid. To the extent that the remainder of the Policy Statement is unaffected by a change in controlling laws, rules, and/or regulations, that remaining portion of the Policy Statement will remain valid and in effect. Please note that no policies exist between 89 and 119. Information Technology Policies begin with number 120 to parallel the numbering at LSU A&M.

For a listing of policy statements that have been rescinded over time, visit Rescinded Policy Statements.
