Introduced to the Howard University community in mid-October 2010, the University Policy Office (UPO) manages a coordinated, enterprise-wide policy process that supports Howard University and its mission. The UPO facilitates effective decision-making, promotes effective control over business process and flow, and prevents institutional exposure through a transparent, uniform and inclusive policy management process. The University Policy Office is housed on the 7th floor of the Howard Center.
