Regents Policy Manual (RPM) The Regents Policy Manual is the collection of policy statements, formally approved by the New Mexico State University Board of Regents, which govern the University at the highest level. The Regents have granted authority to the University administration to adopt additional rules and procedures as may be appropriate and necessary to implement the Regent’s policies. Those additional rules and procedures, published as the “Administrative Rules and Procedures” (ARP) have the force and effect of policy as long as the rules and procedures are consistent with the policy directives from the Regents as contained in this Regents Policy Manual.

Administrative Rules and Procedures (ARP) The ARP’s purpose is to set and communicate the rules by which the Regents overarching policies are to be implemented, in furtherance of the efficient and effective management of the institution, and consistent with principles of shared governance. The Rules set forth in this ARP constitute NMSU policy, provided such Rules are consistent with the RPM. In the event of any inconsistency, the provisions of the RPM are controlling.
