The Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs compiles, revises, and makes accessible policies and procedures that regulate academic activities on the Bloomington campus. These policies and procedures are at the core of IU Bloomington's commitment to shared governance: faculty and the administration work together to set a course for the future of the university. Faculty rights and faculty responsibilities are enshrined in these policies, which provide a means to settle disputes and grievances in a fair and just manner.
