Standard Operating Procedures

The College of Sciences Standard Operating Procedures establishes a framework and sets standards that guide how we should conduct ourselves as faculty, staff and members of the broader NC State community. It is a resource for interpreting the variety of situations that can occur in the workplace. These include how we perform our jobs, make decisions, interact with one another and manage the business operations of our college.

The Dean’s executive assistant maintains the consistency of this manual. Information on how to create a procedure for this website can be found here. Please use our standard template for your new procedure; the template is available in Word and PDF formats. Links to all new procedures should be added to the table below in addition to other relevant sections of this website.
