The Policy Library is the repository of documents essential to the fulfillment of Fort Lewis College's purpose as a public institution of higher education. Compliance with state law and policy, federal law and policy, and the Higher Learning Commission's requirements for accreditation, as well as best practices in higher education, create the context for our actions as an institution.

This website, maintained by the Office of the President, is a good faith effort to accurately present the policies of Fort Lewis College in a way that is useful for the campus and the general public.

The Policy Library is subject to change without notice. Any questions or comments can be directed to the Policy Librarian .
