Instructions for Online Syllabi

Updated 07302015

In accordance with the UW-Whitewater, Faculty Senate Resolution 945-12, instructors of every course are required to submit an updated syllabus to the library every semester. This is an especially important requirement this year since our campus is under review for re-accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission in October 2015. Review of campus syllabi is an integral part of the campus review, and we would appreciate everyone's help with this requirement.

Faculty and staff have three options for sharing their syllabi using the Integrated Course Listing (ICL) system.  Syllabi may be submitted online using the Integrated Course Listing (ICL) database (uploading new or managing existing syllabi).  ICL allows the uploading of Portable Document Format (PDF) files only

Instructors may choose to have a copy of the syllabus available:
1)     in the library (choose "paper copy only" option);
2)     digitally, but limited to users with UW-Whitewater Net-ID (now the default option); or
3)     digitally to the public-at-large (choose "make this syllabus public" option).

As such, syllabi will be accessible only to users logged in with a UW-Whitewater Net-ID, unless explicitly marked "public" by the instructor.  However, syllabi may be released in response to a public records request.

Questions or issues regarding the "paper copy only" option can be directed to Michael Johnson of the University Library at EXT.: 1022. 

Questions regarding syllabus uploading and website issues can be directed to the Help Desk at EXT.:  4357. Please ask for Anand Vangipuram.

How to use the system:  Using the Online Syllabi Instructions, go to courses.uww.edu, login using your UW-Whitewater Net-ID, and click "Log On."
