In December 2021 the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents approved a policy to develop strong, collaborative relationships with the sovereign American Indian tribes in Wisconsin.

This policy applies to all University of Wisconsin System institutions that develop and engage in relationships with sovereign American Indian Tribes in Wisconsin.

The Tribal Consultation policy reflects the System’s commitment to government-to-government relationships with the tribes, including regular communication related to research, agreements, initiatives, and policies that have an impact on the tribes and individual members.
