Policies and Procedures

In order to create an institutional environment marked by God‐honoring excellence, Vanguard University expects all employees to familiarize themselves with current university charters and policies. As a resource that supports the communication of such charters and policies, this site allows you to view approved charters and policies that affect you, your department or your constituents. This listing is meant to be a supplement to existing policy publications (e.g. handbooks) and should be used in accordance with other university policy communications.

The Vanguard University Board of Trustees is the final authority in university governance. All corporate powers shall be exercised under the ultimate direction of the Board of Trustees. The Board is responsible for institutional policies and will provide the President with clear policies for the administration of the University and the achievement of its mission. University charters and policies are subject to change at the direction of the Board of Trustees or by the President.

Individuals with questions about a particular charter or policy should contact the responsible department/office noted in that charter or policy.

Questions regarding university charter and policies may be directed to the Institutional Manual Coordinator via email at IMC@vanguard.edu

Reporting Hotline

To report activity deemed as unethical or illegal, VU offers students, faculty and staff access to a confidential, anonymous reporting system that is not part of the university. Available 24/7/365, LIGHTHOUSE sends the report to VU while protecting the reporter’s identity and allowing anonymous follow-up.

LIGHTHOUSE doesn’t replace existing university processes for reporting concerns. It’s an alternative for anyone who feels unsafe using the usual channels.
