In case of emergency, or any time there is immediate danger to health or safety, call 911. 

In non-emergency situations, you are encouraged to consult first with the Violence Prevention Specialist in Student Life if you are considering reporting sexual assault or other sexual misconduct. The Violence Prevention Specialist can provide confidential advice about the full range of available reporting and support options. Services are free, confidential, and available to all UWL students, faculty, and staff. 

The other confidential resources listed below are available to offer private support and advice, and make referrals to the appropriate resources.
