Katheryn Yetter University Policy and Standards Specialist
Katheryn Yetter, University Policy and Standards Specialist 

I consult with unit leaders and other stakeholders to develop and maintain our University Policies and Standards, which are published in the University Policy and Standards Manual. These governance documents express the goals, values, and culture of the university and collectively, provide the authority and guidance that is required to achieve the university’s mission, and outline the relevant responsibilities to the university community.  

Before joining Oregon State University in April 2022, I served as the associate provost for academic affairs and was a member of the faculty at The National Judicial College. I am an active member of the Oregon State Bar and hold a Doctor of Jurisprudence from Willamette University College of Law and a Bachelor of Science from the University of Oregon.  

Contact me with questions about:  

  • Best practices in drafting University Policies, University Standards, unit rules, and procedures.  
  • Ideas you may have for new University Policies or Standards, or suggestions for revising or retiring existing ones.  
  • How to apply existing policies to factual scenarios to analyze impact.  
  • Whether the university has a University Policy or Standard on a particular subject, or whether there is other governance that might help to guide decision-making.
