Open Meetings Notice

Wisconsin’s Open Meetings Law embodies the principle that the public is entitled to the greatest possible information about government affairs. The law requires most government bodies to conduct official business in open meetings and to post in advance public notices. UW Oshkosh requires the submission of this online form and a second posting on a bulletin board near the meeting location, 48 hours ahead of the meeting time.

View open meetings and agendas on the Open Meetings Calendar. Visit the Academic Affairs website to learn more about the open meeting law and how it applies to UW Oshkosh meetings.
