Revised Policies in May 2024

Animals on Campus Policy (Revision): The Animals on Campus Policy and Procedures were split into separate documents to reflect best practice.  Each document has been reformatted with clear headings to enhance accessibility. Modifications to the language have been made to improve clarity and conciseness, as well as to more clearly define the circumstances under which animals may be removed from an area or event.

Contractor Parking Policy (Revision): Changes to this policy were requested by University Planning, Design, and Construction in response to dialogue with Storrs Downtown Partnership regarding contractor parking in the downtown garage.

Leave Benefits for Managerial and Confidential Employees (Revision effective July 1, 2024): The Leave Benefits for Managerial and Confidential Exempt Employees was revised to: (1) decouple the existing policy between Storrs/Regional employees and UConn Health employees; and, subsequently, (2) align leave provisions and entitlements with Storrs/Regional practices and benefits associated with Storrs-based unionized employee benefits. The UConn Health revision of this policy was approved by the UConn Health Administrative Policy Committee on 4/1/24.

University Logo and Trademark Policy (Revision): The revision clarifies appropriate uses, including usage for registered student organizations, and emphasizes the importance of UConn trademarks and their role in maintaining brand integrity. The revision also outlines clearer enforcement rules to address potential violations. Designed with some flexibility, the policy will remain relevant as the UConn brand continues to evolve.
