Subject: Posting Syllabi - Faculty Senate Resolution 945-12 and Academic Staff Assembly ASAR 1516.8
Date: January 8, 2019
In accordance with the UW-Whitewater Faculty Senate (Resolution 945-12) and Academic Staff Assembly (ASAR 1516.8), instructors of every course are required to submit an updated syllabus every semester. Syllabi need to be uploaded as PDF files using the Online Syllabus Database or submitted directly to Andersen Library in paper form. PDF (Portable Document Format) files are the only format supported by the Online Syllabus Database.
Instructors may choose one of the following options when submitting a syllabus and making it available:
digitally, but limited to users with UW-Whitewater Net-ID (the default option);
digitally to the public-at-large (choose “make this syllabus public” option); or
in the library, and limited to users with UW-Whitewater Net-ID (choose “paper copy only” option).
As such, syllabi will be accessible only to users with a UW-Whitewater Net-ID, unless explicitly marked "public" by the instructor. However, please be aware that any and all syllabi may be released in response to a public records request.
