About Regent Policy Documents

The Regent Policy Documents were adopted pursuant to the policy-making authority vested in the Board by Chapter 36 of the Wisconsin Statutes. The Regent Policies address, but are not limited to: academic policies and programs, equal opportunity, tuition and fees, housing, activities of faculty members, student activities, and trust and investment policies.

Effective April 13, 2007, the Board of Regents adopted a new organizational structure and numbering system for the Regent Policy Documents to categorize the policies by topic and assign each policy a number based upon its sequential position within each topical category. This new format will ensure easier access to these policies and greater public transparency in the governance of the UW System. For convenience, this website provides the current policy numbers cross-referenced with the former policy numbers. Please note that the numbering of the policies may not be sequential due to removal of obsolete policies. If you have questions, please contact the Secretary's office at (608) 262-2324.

This website is a ready reference for those charged with carrying out Board policy. Unless noted otherwise, associated documents and reports may be obtained from the Office of the Secretary of the Board of Regents. The Board of Regents office maintains the official copy of the Regents policies.
