The following message from UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank was sent to UW-Madison employees on Tuesday, July 18, 2017.

Preventing Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence at UW-Madison Training Notice

Campus Colleagues,

I write to you regarding a new training requirement that reflects our institutional commitment to ensuring a safe and equitable teaching, learning, and working environment for all members of our campus community.

Preventing Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence at UW–Madison” is an online training module on how to recognize, prevent, and respond to sexual assault and sexual violence in the workplace. Information about reporting options and campus and community resources to support individuals who have experienced sexual harassment or sexual violence are also provided.

Employees without access to a computer as part of their daily work responsibilities and our English language learners will be offered alternate training opportunities on this important topic.

Completing this training by September 30, 2017 meets our compliance obligations under Board of Regents Policy 14-2. More importantly, it moves us forward in achieving a campus free from sexual harassment and sexual violence.

Please join me in learning how you can make a positive difference in assuring the safety of all members of the University of Wisconsin–Madison community by completing “Preventing Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence at UW–Madison.”
