DePauw Open File Policy Form
DePauw University has an open file policy which states "Each individual or committee placing a document in the decision file must be identified in order for that document to be considered." (Academic Handbook, Personnel Policies, Section III.F.1.)

This means that anything to be included in a faculty member’s decision file is available to that faculty member as well as to the members of the committees reviewing the file. Therefore, an acknowledgment of this policy must be either included in or attached to any document submitted for consideration as part of a faculty member's decision file.
