UW Chancellor responds to DeVos announcement on sexual assault guidelines

MADISON — UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank released a statement Thursday in response to the Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ announcement a review of Obama-era sexual assault guidelines on college campuses.

“No student on our campus should have to deal with sexual assault,” Blank said. “We have worked hard to develop a set of policies and practices that serve our students well and we do not plan to change them.”

Blank said the university will continue to focus efforts on investigations and disciplinary processes that are fair and impartial, as well as providing evidence-based education and prevention programs to all students.

DeVos cites concerns that the current policy denies due process to individuals accused.
