Policies and processes

Policy at RMIT is changing.

On 8 December 2015, Council approved the new Policy framework. This policy replaces the Policy on policies. It consolidates and simplifies the way in which policies are written, how they are discussed with stakeholders, and how they are approved.

University Secretariat is leading a project to consolidate RMIT’s policies and re-draft in accordance with the new framework.
