About Saint Mary's

University Policies

‌Saint Mary's University Policies are the single source of Saint Mary's institution-wide policies not otherwise available in other official source publications such as the University Calendar or Collective Agreements.

These policies are divided into several broad subject categories listed below.  Under these categories there are subsets of policies; Travel Policies within Financial Services and Payroll within Human Resources as an example.



Each policy, procedure or guideline contains information at the start which includes the department responsible for developing and maintaining the document ("owner" of the policy). Any questions concerning a policy should be directed to the responsible department.

Definitions may also support your understanding of the components of policy governance.

To add an approved policy to the University listing, please call Tracey Randem at 902-420-5464 or e-mail Financial Services at admin.finservices@smu.ca.
