Enforcing a Policy
Campuses take two broad approaches to enforcement: educational approaches and punitive approaches. Campuses typically spend the first year of a new policy focusing on educational approaches and then use punitive approaches (citations and fines) as needed after that.
Defining policy success is essential to effective compliance and enforcement. Setting data-based goals is important when assessing whether or not your campus should do more to increase compliance.
There are many things that a campus can do to increase policy compliance, however, putting time, energy and funding into effective policy implementation is one of the most effective strategies to achieve policy success (see the Policy Implementation page).
