The UW–Madison Policy Library is the single, up-to-date resource for all university-wide policies. Any university-wide policy that is not in the library will not be considered official policy.

To help maintain the integrity of the policy library, all campus constituents should use the resources and tools linked under Policy Development when developing new policy or revising existing policy. In addition, any policy links published on campus websites or in Knowledgebases should go directly to those policies in the library.
