The annual policy notification process provides the campus community with regular reminders about important policies that impact faculty, staff and students at the University of Iowa.

Policy notifications typically are distributed as mass emails or as items in Iowa Now (managed by the Office of Strategic Communication). Audiences and senders vary by policy/message.

Some notifications fall under the purview of University Human Resources or the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
