Sexual Assault Information

Dean of Students

The Dean of Students Office is committed to providing an environment that is free of sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, and dating and domestic violence in any form.  We are dedicated to creating a safe and secure campus that allows students, faculty, staff and community members the right to learn, work and live.  These standards apply to all regardless of sex, gender or sexual orientation.


The choice is yours.

If you have been sexually assaulted, it is important to remember that you have choices about how to take care of yourself. There is no one right way to ensure your self-care.

Listed below are several options, offering you suggestions on how to meet your physical safety and emotional needs, how to obtain medical attention, and options for filing a report to prompt an investigation.

Reports can be filed with the law enforcement agency in which the incident occurred or with the Dean of Students office designated by UW-Platteville for sexual violence/Title IX investigations. If you choose to report, you can bring a victim advocate or support person with you to do so.

For more about the services, both on- and off-campus, available to survivors of sexual assault, see the DOS Resources for Victims of Sexual assault, Dating/Domestic Violence or Stalking webpage.

Below is a list of both campus and community resources you can report to. You can get confidential help without reporting.

Remember, there are many paths to healing, and only you know what you need.
