Locating previous versions of policies

Online update history

Many policies on this site have web update history publicly available online as far back as the 2010s, and if the revision history you're looking for is from that era or newer it is likely available through this site. To view that history, visit the policy page in question. If additional past versions of the policy are available online, a box titled "Update history" will be visible in the sidebar. You can also use the headers of the table on the policy updates page to search and sort the policy revisions that are published online.

Paper records

Paper records of previous Faculty Handbook versions are held by the Office of the University Secretary.
