In September 2016, the Board of Trustees voted to allow the university’s administration to review UW’s current regulatory structure, to update University Regulations, and to implement standard administrative policies and procedures. 

A review process that allowed for feedback from campus constituents (including Faculty Senate, Staff Senate & ASUW), Deans, Vice Presidents, the President, and the Board was established.

The Office of Academic Affairs created this website to provide the university community at large with regular updates on the review process for University Regulations pertaining to Academic Personnel.
