System Policy Number Change

On Oct. 1, the UW System launched a new policy numbering scheme and new policy website. The new scheme merges several old policy series--such as ACIS, ANS, F, and G--into a single series (SYS). All System policies are now available from the new policy website

A chart mapping old numbers to new is available here.

Policy Overview

Policies help ensure that decisions and transactions are made in uniform and authorized ways. Policies communicate the position the university must follow on an issue and provide the authority needed to ensure compliance. 

UW-Stout is governed by policies developed at several levels. They include federal law, Wisconsin Statutes and Administrative Code, Board of Regents' and UW System Administration policies, and policies developed at UW-Stout. To comply with a federal, state, System, or campus policy, UW-Stout develops administrative procedures to implement the policy. 

Several frequently used policy sources are listed above, along with the UW-Stout office that serves as the primary contact for each. Documents available on the Internet are linked. Copies of other policies are available at the University Library and at the Planning, Assessment, Research and Quality office.
