UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Wisconsin Statute 36.11 (22) requires that any university employee, including some student employees, i.e., resident assistants and hall managers, who either (a) witness a sexual assault involving a student or (b) receives a report from a student who has been sexually assaulted, must report the incident to the Director of Student Conduct & Community Standards: 715-425-0720.
If the alleged victim wants anonymity, you may report the incident without using names. This statute does not legally require that persons be identified, only that reports of incidents be made for record keeping purposes. Each year, UWRF is required to report this data to UW System Administration who then forwards a UW System summary to the Office of Justice.
The Campus Community Sexual Assault Coalition has compiled a Campus and Community Assault Resource and Services Guide.
If you receive a report about a sexual assault, please know that the campus and community have victim support resources.
In addition to recourse and support through the River Falls Police Department (9-911), on-campus help is available through:
The City of River Falls lists a variety of resources in its local phone book.
Please contact Thomas Pedersen, Director, Student Conduct & Community Standards, 715-425-0720, if you have questions or concerns or to report a sexual assault.
