Institutional Policy and Compliance

Policy News and Updates

Draft, Updated, and New System Policies will be featured on this webpage for campus review.


Please refer to the Fiscal Year 2021 UW System Administrative Policy Priorities Announcement for a list of UW System Administrative policies and procedures that are scheduled for revision or development during Fiscal Year 2020. These policies have been identified as being of high priority, either through the subject matter of the policy, the policy's last revision date, or whether a policy needs to be updated due to other internal or external factors.


If you would like to be kept informed of the policy process - including receiving notifications when draft administrative policies are available for comment, or when an administrative policy or procedure has been approved - you can subscribe to the RSS newsfeed for policy updates. 


You can also read our Policy Status Updates document, which summarizes recent UW System Policy changes as well as UW-Whitewater Practice Directive and Procedure progress. It is updated on a monthly basis.


Another available resource to reference is the UW Institutional Policy Library. Here you can access links to policies, procedures, and handbooks for each UW Institution.


We highly encourage the campus community to read, and stay up-to-date with, all UW System Policies
