Name, Purpose, and Membership

As authorized by State of Wisconsin statute [36.09 (4m)] and subject to the authority of the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents, the president of the UW System and the Chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, the academic staff members through their elected governance body organize, for the purposes of participation in the governance of this university and to represent the interests of the academic staff of this university.

This authority is derived from Act 29 of the Laws of 1985 for the State of Wisconsin, which states: "The academic staff members of each institution, subject to the responsibilities and powers of the board, the president and the chancellor and the faculty of the institution, shall be active participants in the immediate governance of and policy development for the institution...(They) have primary responsibility for the formulation and review, and shall be represented in the development of all policies and procedures concerning academic staff members, including academic staff personnel matters. The academic staff members of each institution shall have the right to organize themselves in a manner they determine and to select their representatives to participate in institutional governance."

The academic staff of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville organize and associate themselves together under the name "Academic Staff of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville." Academic staff members are those persons designated in UW-P 1.03. "Academic staff members are professional and administrative personnel (other than faculty and classified staff) with duties and types of appointments that are primarily associated with higher education institutions and who are designated as academic staff by the chancellor."


The following amendment has been approved by the UW-Platteville Academic Staff as an addition to the Academic Staff Constitution, Article II.

Name and Membership

Academic staff members who are granted faculty status by the faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and who choose to participate in faculty governance, shall be ineligible to serve as a member of the Academic Staff Senate or of any of its committees, councils or commissions. Neither shall these academic staff members be eligible to vote in elections nor referendums of the academic staff except in personnel matters.
