    Analysis prepared by the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System.

    Statutes interpreted:  Sections 36.09(1), 36.11(1) and 36.13(3), Stats.

    Statutory authority:  Sections 36.09(1), 36.11(1) and 36.13(3), Stats.

    Explanation of agency authority:  The Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System has the authority under Sections 36.09(1), 36.11(1) and 36.13(3), Stats., to issue rules for the dismissal of faculty and academic staff members.

    Related statute or rule:  Current Wis. Admin. Code chs. UWS 4 and UWS 11.

    Plain language analysis:  The purpose of the proposed rules is to add provisions to Board rules regarding dismissal of faculty and academic staff to deal specifically with circumstances in which faculty and academic staff members have engaged in serious criminal misconduct, a category of just cause under the rule.  The proposed rules would define serious criminal misconduct, provide protection for constitutionally-protected conduct, expression, or beliefs, and assure adequate due process in the dismissal proceedings.

    SECTION 1 amends s. UWS 2.02 to provide that rules and procedures developed pursuant to ch. UWS 7 by the faculty of each institution shall be forwarded by the chancellor to the president and by the president to the board for its approval prior to their taking effect.

    SECTION 2 creates ch. UWS 7 relating to dismissal of university faculty members who engage in serious criminal misconduct.  SECTION 2 also defines “serious criminal misconduct”, and provides that constitutionally-protected conduct, expression, or belief do not constitute serious criminal misconduct.   SECTION 2 establishes expedited procedures for investigation and dismissal of faculty members who engage in serious criminal misconduct.  SECTION 2 provides that a chancellor, after consultation with appropriate faculty governance representatives, may suspend a faculty member from duties without pay pending the final decision as to his or her dismissal in appropriate circumstances.

    SECTIONS 3 AND 4 amend ch. UWS 11 to provide that just cause for dismissal of members of the academic staff includes “serious criminal misconduct” as defined in SECTION 5.

    SECTION 5 amends ch. UWS 11 to provide for dismissal of members of the academic staff who engage in serious criminal misconduct.  SECTION 5 also defines “serious criminal misconduct”, and provides that constitutionally-protected conduct, expression, or belief do not constitute serious criminal misconduct.   SECTION 5 establishes expedited procedures for investigation and dismissal of members of the academic staff who engage in serious criminal misconduct.  SECTION 5 provides that a chancellor, after consultation with appropriate academic staff governance representatives, may suspend a faculty member from duties without pay pending the final decision as to his or her dismissal in appropriate circumstances.

    Copies of the text of the rule may be obtained at no charge from the Office of the Board of Regents, 1860 Van Hise Hall, 1220 Linden Drive, Madison, Wisconsin 53706.

    Summary of, and comparison with, existing or proposed federal regulations:  There is no existing or proposed federal regulation for summary and comparison.

    Comparison with rules in adjacent states.  There are no corresponding rules in adjacent states for comparison.

    Summary of factual data and analytical methodologies:  There were no factual data or analytical methodologies used to develop the proposed rules.

    Analysis and supporting documents used to determine effect on small business:  The proposed rules affect only faculty and academic staff of the University of Wisconsin System.  They have no effect on small business.

    Effect on small business:  The proposed rules will have no effect on small business.

    Fiscal estimate:  The proposed rules will have no fiscal effect. 

    Agency contact person:  Christopher L. Ashley, Senior System Legal Counsel, University of Wisconsin System Administration, 1808 Van Hise Hall, 1220 Linden Drive, Madison, Wisconsin 53706.  Telephone: (608) 262-3662.   Email: cashley@uwsa.edu.
