Reporting Sexual Misconduct
The University of Wisconsin – Parkside is committed to maintaining an educational environment that is conducive to academic success and personal growth. While we sincerely hope that no member of our campus community (student, faculty, staff, or guest) ever experiences an act of violence, it is important to know how to report such an incident and what resources are available for support.
Reports of sexual misconduct (sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating/domestic violence, or stalking) may be made to the Dean of Students Office and/or the University Police. To file a report with the Dean of Students Office, you may contact the office directly at (262) 595-2598 or you may complete the online Sexual Assault Reporting Form. To file a report with the police, you may contact the UWP Police Department at (262) 595-2455 (if the incident took place off-campus, the UWP Police will assist in connecting you with the appropriate law enforcement agency).
Students living on-campus who report incidents of sexual misconduct to a Residence Life staff member (Resident Assistant, Hall Manager, Residence Life Office staff, Custodian/Maintenance staff) will be assisted in contacting the Dean of Students Office and/or Police.
Most UW-Parkside staff members are required to report any known cases of sexual assault to the Dean of Students. If you would like to talk to someone who does not have to disclose your name to the Dean of Students, you may speak with one of the health care providers (Nurse Practitioner or Counselor) in the Student Health and Counseling Center. You can make an appointment by calling (262) 595-2366.Community 24-hour Crisis Lines are also available (see Quick Links).
Please contact the Dean of Students Office at (262) 595-2598 or the University's Title IX Coordinator, Heather Kind-Keppel, at (262) 595-2239 if you have any questions about sexual misconduct reporting requirements or procedures.
