Members of recognized UW-Whitewater student organizations are expected to abide by certain policies as outlined in student organization recognition procedures. Members of all student organizations, clubs, teams, Greek organizations, honoraria, and academic organizations are covered by these procedures. It is especially important for faculty advisors to be familiar with these policies and procedures.

Additionally, students are also governed by many local policies as outlined in housing contracts, event and activity guidelines, and expectations for use of certain facilities. Each student utilizing or participating in such activities is responsible for knowledge of specific accompanying policies. It is imperative that these established procedures are followed so that the university is affording students their guaranteed due process rights. To assist with interpretation of policies and procedures, the Dean of Students Office serves as an oversight office for student policy implementation.
