Description

Members of the UW-Madison Community,

You are receiving this Crime Warning as part of UW-Madison’s commitment to providing campus-area crime information, in compliance with the federal Clery Act (Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act).

On Thursday, October 23, 2014, UW-Madison was made aware of a sexual assault that occurred in an on-campus residence hall on Friday, October 17, 2014. The incident was not reported to the UW-Madison Police Department, and is not currently being investigated by police. No other information is available.

If you’ve been sexually assaulted, tell someone – there are resources available to help you. Please visit uwpd.wisc.edu/tellus for more information. Although no measure is failsafe, here are some protective measures you might consider to increase your personal safety and the safety of those around you:

  • Make sure you have consent. Consent is a clear and freely given yes, not the absence of a no.
  • People who are incapacitated by alcohol or drugs cannot give consent.
  • Practice being assertive about your boundaries.
  • If saying NO or STOP is too hard, consider creating a diversion so you can leave.
  • Get your own drinks; don’t let someone continually fill your cup or leave your drink unattended.

For more information on the Clery Act, and why you’re receiving this federally mandated Crime Warning, please visit www.ed.gov/admins/lead/safety/campus.html.
