UW System launches website on sexual assault, harassment

The University of Wisconsin System launched a new website Friday with information and resources about sexual assault and harassment at each campus, officials said in a news release.

The website includes information about support services and resources on each campus as well as system policies and applicable laws.

“We want the women and men on our campus to feel safe, so this is all about changing the culture, it’s about our students knowing they have a safe space to live and to learn,” UW System communications director Stephanie Marquis said.

The website was one of several recommendations from a task force that system president Ray Cross asked for in 2014 to address sexual assault and harassment on its campuses.

Among the recommendations in the December report are providing training and professional development for staff, connecting survivors to resources and increasing prevention resources.
