Mandatory policy on reporting of sexual assaults
All employees are required by law to report knowledge of sexual assaults on campus. The goal is to address the needs of students. By gathering information the extent of sexual assaults will be known and support for students who have been victims can be provided. The Wisconsin law states, “…any person employed at an institution or center who witnesses a sexual assault or receives a report from a student enrolled in the institution or center that the student has been sexually assaulted shall report to the dean of students of the institution…” This does not mean that you have to violate any confidences or provide names. It does mean that incidents are to be reported to the Dean of Students, ext. 2152.
