Guide to Reporting Sexual Misconduct at UWL
(Sexual Assault, Sexual Harassment, Relationship Violence, Stalking)
Who Must Report Incidents of Sexual Misconduct to the University, and Why?
All university employees (except those designated as confidential resources) are mandated reporters of sexual assault or other sexual misconduct. Both federal and state regulations require our institution to promptly respond to, investigate, and resolve complaints regarding any sexual misconduct that takes place on campus; is connected to the institution's programs; or is perpetrated by anyone affiliated with the institution.
For a suggested response if a student approaches you with a concern that may be related to sexual misconduct, go to: https://www.uwlax.edu/info/sexual-misconduct/learn-more/#tab-for-faculty-and-staff. A sample syllabus statement and tips on how to support victims can also be found here.
When in doubt, report! Members of the Title IX Team will evaluate the report and decide whether it warrants any further action.
How Do I Submit a Report?
Please fill out and submit the Official Report Form found at the end of this section.
What Will Happen After I Submit a Report?
A member of the Title IX Team will contact you for follow up. The (confidential) Student Life Violence Prevention Specialist will contact the reported victim to offer them support, options and resources, and to answer questions about the conduct process
