Welcome to the University of Adelaide’s Policy Directory, an interactive website managed by the Council Secretariat.

The University of Adelaide is governed by its Council which is established by the University of Adelaide Act 1971. Under s.9(1)(d) of the Act, Council is responsible for “establishing policy and procedural principles, consistent with legal requirements and community expectations”.

The Adelaide Policy Framework is the operational structure for the developing, implementing, reviewing and maintaining the University’s policies and procedures in a consistent format. The University’s policies, and the principles and procedures within these policies, provide internal explanation of the regulatory requirement. The Adelaide Policy Framework provides the information needed to develop, review or delete a policy.
