Public Records Information for Institutions

The Wisconsin Public Records Law is a series of laws designed to guarantee that the public has access to public records of government bodies, including UW System. The laws, sometimes referred to as sunshine laws, promote transparency and honesty in the work across UW System and the employees who represent its institutions. Additional information on requesting public records for an institution can be found on their websites.
