As approved by the University Academic Planning Council on March 17, 2016, the policy was created to provide UW-Madison with a university-wide standard for the appointment of instructional staff in courses taught for academic credit.  Such a standard will set common expectations for instructor qualifications at UW-Madison. In addition, it is being promulgated to meet the new accreditation standards adopted by the Higher Learning Commission in June 2015.

     *Instructors must meet standards for instruction, have background checks, Title IX training, access to the Learning Management System (LMS), and otherwise meet standards for employees working with students.
