Reporting to the University can feel intimidating, but you can control how much you’d like the university to know. You have “made a report” as soon as you have told the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy that you believe you are a victim of sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking.
However, UWM may be limited in its ability to investigate or respond to the incident if we do not have sufficient information to follow up on your report.
A report to the University may be a good option for you if you are hoping to receive accommodations, or a finding of responsibility or University sanctions against the person you are alleging engaged in sexual violence. A formal report may not be a good option for you if you are hoping to remain anonymous, or report confidentially. On-campus confidential resources include: UWM’s Victim Advocate, (414) 229-4582, the Norris Health Center, (414) 229-4716, and University Counseling and Health Promotion, (414) 229-4716, and they can meet with you to discuss your options before you make a report.
