Policies & Procedures

This site is intended to serve as a repository for Human Resources policies and procedures. A policy is defined as one with broad application throughout the University, which helps ensure coordinated compliance with applicable laws and regulations; promotes operational efficiencies; enhances the University’s mission; or reduces institutional risk.

The language used in the Human Resources policies does not create an employment contract between the employee and Texas Christian University (TCU). The University reserves the right to revise the content of the Human Resources policies, in whole or in part, with or without notice.

In all cases, the Human Resources policies are intended to be consistent with the prevailing state and federal laws and regulations. However, in the event the language contained in the Human Resources policies conflicts with state or federal laws or regulations, the state or federal laws or regulations will control. TCU Human Resources has the authority to interpret the University’s Human Resources policies.
