UI Employment Resources and Policies

The Operations Manual is the most current statement of University of Iowa policy.  This University of Iowa Operations Manual contains University administrative, financial, and community policies, as well as certain University-level implementing procedures. These policies and procedures have been developed to supplement and clarify Regent policy and to incorporate specific requirements of federal, state, and administrative rules and regulations.  Members of the College of Public Health with questions about the interpretation and application of an Operations Manual policy may seek advice from the College of Public Health Office of Human Resources.

The Resource Handbook for Business and Fiduciary Conduct describes the responsibility that we have as University of Iowa employees, to honor excellence and responsibility and hold ourselves to the highest standards of honesty, fairness, and personal integrity on behalf of the institution. Topics covered include:

  • General statement of Conduct
  • Objectivity in Decision Making
  • Use of University funds and resources for University purposes
  • Integrity in the conduct of University business

The University of Iowa’s Build a Career | Build a Life  is a great resource designed to assist you to successfully build a career and build a life. At the University of Iowa, we recognize the important relationship between productive careers and quality personal lives.
