What gives UW the authority to require me to be tested?

State law empowers the university to protect the health and safety of members of the university community. Board of Regent policies hold the chancellor responsible for making the health and safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors an integral part of UW–Madison’s operations. The chancellor is authorized to establish policies and procedures to promote a safe, secure and healthy environment. By virtue of their association with the university, students, employees and visitors must comply with the applicable policies and procedures.
