- The UW–Madison Athletic Department may schedule competitions with schools that are not on the NCAA’s list of colleges and universities subject to the restrictions on the use of Native American mascots, names, and imagery at NCAA championships (referred to subsequently in this policy as the NCAA list).
- The UW–Madison Athletic Department will not schedule competitions against, or attend tournaments hosted by, any school on the NCAA list, unless the school is a conference member. The Athletic Department will contact the NCAA twice annually (by September 1 and January 1) to obtain the most current version of the NCAA list, and this list will be distributed to Athletic Department staff, including all coaches. The Athletic Department discourages the participation of teams in pre-season events or tournaments during the regular season in which schools on the NCAA list are also participating unless the schedule is controlled by outside entities (e.g., the Big Ten Conference) or is the result of other contractual agreements.
- The UW–Madison Athletic Department will discourage all teams from bringing Native American mascots to UW–Madison athletic facilities. Furthermore, UW–Madison will request that any band not play war chants and that the cheerleaders/pompom squads not use Native American gestures, chants, or other items that perpetuate disrespectful stereotypes.
