May 2019

 The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee strives to provide a safe and secure learning and working environment for everyone involved in university activities. Executive Order #54 requires that all University of Wisconsin System employees must report incidents of child abuse and neglect.

 If the incident or threat of child abuse or neglect involves an allegation against a UWM employee, student, agent, volunteer, or contractor, or the suspected child abuse or neglect occurred on the UWM campus or during a UWM sponsored activity, the reporter must notify:

  • Milwaukee County Bureau of Child Welfare: (414) 343-5500
  • UWM Police Department: (414) 229-4627

 The reporter may also notify their Dean, Director or Division Head. The confidentiality of the reporter will be maintained to the extent permitted by law or UWM policy.
