Chapter 1

Types of Unclassified Appointments



For liability purposes, anyone volunteering at UW-Madison must be given a letter—similar to an appointment letter—outlining the conditions of the relationship (see sample letter—Attachment 1-A). 

Detailed information regarding appropriate responsibilities for volunteers, letters to volunteers, insurance issues and ID cards are detailed in the Fact Sheet (Attachment 1-B).

Volunteers need not be university retirees.  However, the UW-Madison Retirement Association may of assistance in locating interested volunteers (phone 608-262-0641).

Questions about liability coverage for volunteers should be directed to the Director of Risk Management (262-8925).  For other questions, contact the Academic Personnel Office (265-2257).
