When appropriate, propose new school policy to be confirmed by the Faculty Executive Committee, regarding consistent definitions of key categories, new processes, etc. as demanded by the requirements of accreditation. Compile, elaborate and edit document for accuracy, consistency, and a unified voice/tone. Ensure consistent formatting and style of document and embed hyperlinks to reference documents.
