Sample Policies


This is a gathering of policies that have been collected by NRRO from women's and men's institutes across the United States. There is no difference in the style of the policy between men's and women's institutes. There also is no difference between the size of the institute and the type of policy.

We have removed the names and references to the institute in order to protect against any liability back to the institute. A religious institute is cautioned to use these samples as a starting point for creating your own policies and not to just copy one of them and make it your own.

If you would like your policy added to this collection, please send it in Word format to
