The University of Wisconsin-Platteville is committed to creating a safe and informed campus community. In compliance with federal guidelines, the Clery Report provides information about UW-Platteville crime and safety statistics.
Wisconsin State Statute 36.11(22) requires states that "any person employed at an institution who witnesses a sexual assault on campus or receives a report from a student enrolled in the institution that the student has been sexually assaulted shall report to the dean of students of the institution." Please view this brochure to identify victim rights and resources that may be provided to a student who shares this information with you.
