College Operational Practices
Note: Some links on this page are temporarily down. The files are in ADA Certification review. They will be reposted as soon as that review is complete.
This page lists the operational practices of the College of Arts and Sciences.
Operational practices (OPs) are descriptions of how things are usually done. COAS OPs are subordinate to the COAS Operating Procedures/Bylaws, UNF polices (including the Collective Bargaining Agreement), SUS policies, state law, and federal law. Exceptions to OPs must be authorized by the Dean and the Dean may authorize exceptions from time to time.
The College uses the COAS Canvas Operational Practices Forum to develop OPs.
