Reporting Child Abuse & Neglect

In accordance with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Policy on Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect, all UW-Madison employees (under Wisconsin Executive Order #54), are required to immediately report child abuse or neglect to Child Protective Services (CPS) or law enforcement if, in the course of employment, the employee observes an incident or threat of child abuse or neglect, or learns of an incident or threat of child abuse or neglect, and the employee has reasonable cause to believe that child abuse or neglect has occurred or will occur. Volunteers working for UW-Madison sponsored programs or activities are also expected to report suspected abuse or neglect.

Reporting Options

You can report child abuse or neglect to the UW-Madison Police Department by calling (608) 264-2677, or by visiting UWPD at 1429 Monroe Street. For more information and for additional reporting options, visit the Office for Equity and Diversity online.
