Not sure how much help it is, but here's a page that talks about the
encryption of credentials used to check email here at UMN...
It isn't written as a policy (but it's enforced like one - the mail
servers will not accept unencrypted connections), but it's something you
can point to if you need a list of other institutions requiring
encryption of email credentials.
