The assault was reported to the UW-Madison Police Department, which is currently investigating the case. If you have any information about the incident, please call UWPD at (608) 264-2677.

Sexual assault is never the fault of the victim. While nothing is failsafe, here are some suggestions everyone should consider:

  • Make sure you have consent. Consent is a clear and freely given yes, not the absence of a no.
  • When someone says no, you must respect that person’s decision.
  • Be active in supporting a safe and respectful community. If you see others engaging in disrespectful, inappropriate, or illegal actions, speak up and get involved, or contact someone else to assist.
  • If you witness something that doesn’t feel right, you can help by getting involved. Check-in and ask, “Hey, do you know this person?” or, “Are you OK?”
