The Administration and Operations Manual contains Board approved and administration approved operating policies for Gallaudet University. Policies that are submitted to and approved by the Gallaudet University Board of Trustees are usually those which relate to and have a significant impact on institutional direction, values, priorities and principles and/or on the human, fiscal or physical resources of the Institution. The President is authorized by the Board of Trustees to implement administrative policies that relate to and have an impact on major functional operations, service delivery, and University practices. The Administration and Operations Manual is a resource document; it is in no way a contract of employment and should not be relied upon as such.

The A&O Manual offers comprehensive details about Gallaudet's Human Resources policies and procedures.  It establishes a framework and sets standards that guide how we should conduct ourselves as employees and members of the Gallaudet community.  The A&O Manual also provides supervisors and employees with access to uniform information in order to assure equitable and consistent application of the policies.  

The A&O Manual is managed by the Office of Administration and Finance.  If you have questions about the A&O Manual, please send an email to Harold Garvin.
