UW-Madison Integrated Specialist Zero-Dollar Appointments

Extension funds portions of faculty and academic staff appointments on the UW-Madison campus in the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences (CALS), School of Human Ecology (SoHE), and Letters & Science (L&S). These positions directly contribute to Extension research, education, and programmatic events and activities. UW-Madison integrated specialists will already have a NetID and access to applications and services provided to campus employees. However, they will need a zero-dollar appointment record to be incorporated correctly into Extension email lists, Extension-specific access to certain applications and services, and to be added to the Extension staff directory.


  • All UW-Madison Campus integrated specialists must have a zero-dollar appointment in Extension in the Human Resources System (HRS).
  • Integrated specialists must have their primary programmatic affiliation indicated in the Department ID of the record.

Essential Steps to Take after Creating Record

  1. Enter new integrated faculty and staff into the Extension Directory.
    • Create a person record
    • Create an appointment record
  2. Determine if they need to be added to any Core Extension email lists other than those in which they are automatically included.
    • They will automatically be added to following lists based on the POI record and UDDS code:
      • Extension - All
      • Department Level (ANR or YFCD)
      • Institute Level
      • Department Integrated Specialists (ANR or YFCD)
      • Extension Integrated Specialists - All
  3. Determine if they need to be added to any decentralized email lists.

Deactivating a UW-Madison Integrated Specialist Record

  • Zero dollar appointments have job end dates of June 30 each year. They will be reviewed at least annually.
  • Email if the appointment needs to end before this date.
