The Wichita State University Policies and Procedures Manual was compiled to bring University policies and procedures together in one manual. The manual was compiled from the following sources:

The online manual was first adopted July 1, 1997, and reaffirmed July 1, 2014. Individual policy sections lacking an effective date predate July 1, 1997.

The manual is the official compendium for all university policies and is regulated by Andy Schlapp, Executive Director of Government Relations.
