Internal governing documents

Last changed: 23 April 2024

Internal governing documents are documents adopted by, primarily, the SLU Board, the vice-chancellor, the chief operating officer, a faculty board or a dean.

On this page, a selection of internal governing documents are published, primarily those with a large target group. Please note that not all governing documents are available in English.

If you are looking for a document and cannot find it here, search for it in Public 360. Make sure you have the Public 360 client installed (can be downloaded from the software centre).
