University Reporting Options

UW Oshkosh is committed to providing the safest campus possible for our students, faculty and staff. Sexual assault, abuse or other sexual misconduct including domestic violence, dating violence and stalking is prohibited and will not be tolerated.

Choosing to report an incident of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and/or harassment can be an overwhelming and emotional decision.

There are confidential offices (Campus Victim Advocate, Counseling Center, Student Health Center) at the University that will discuss your options with you, help you navigate the reporting process and support your decision. An investigation will NOT be started as a result of filing a confidential reporting form or speaking with one of these offices.

Confidential Online Reporting Form

You can use this form to confidentially report incidents of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and/or harassment. The appropriate offices will reach out to assist you in any needs you may have.

  • Information entered here will be submitted to the Campus Victim Advocate and the Director of the Counseling Center and will not be shared with any other individuals or offices without your permission.
  • If you are a UWO employee who has knowledge about the sexual assault of a student, you must use the official form. (Only the Student Health Center, the Counseling Center, and the Campus Victim Advocate serve as confidential reporters.)
These offices will help you determine your next steps and discuss your options with you. No official report will be made and nothing will be investigated.
Campus Victim Advocate
(920) 424-2061

Advocacy services are free and confidential and do not require you to report.
Counseling Center
(920) 424-2061
Counselors provide support and caring attention while you make difficult decisions about how to proceed after experiences of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and/or harassment. They can help you restore your sense of safety and personal control through crisis and individual counseling, assessment and documentation for academic accommodations, and referral to other campus or community resources.
Student Health Center

Physicians and Nurse Practitioners provide you with caring medical attention after an incident of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and/or harassment including pregnancy and STI screening, medical examination and documentation of any injuries experienced, and referral to other campus or community services.

The official offices listed below are places you can go to make an official report to the University; the Office of Equal Opportunity & Access (EOA) is required to investigate these reports. However, your level of participation in the investigation is up to you and the EOA Office will, under most circumstances, comply with your wishes.

University Police
(920) 424-1212
Any sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and/or harassment committed on campus property, regardless of whether or not the victim or the perpetrator is a student, staff or faculty should be reported to the University Police. Call the University Police if there is any question of where to make a report.
Dean of Students
(920) 424-3100
The Dean of Students Office investigates students' formal and informal complaints of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and/or harassment. The Dean of Students staff will ensure that you have the support and assistance you need and outline your options.
Equal Opportunity & Access
(920) 424-2296
Students or employees who believe that sexual harassment has occurred can go to the EOA Office, your immediate supervisor or a Department Chair or College Dean. Students may also make a complaint to the Dean of Students Office. The student or employee will be informed of options available and the responsibilities associated with the resolution process. All formal and informal complaints of sexual harassment filed with any of these offices must be investigated by the EOA Office.

UW Oshkosh has established procedures for addressing sexual assaults and interpersonal violence. The student determines their level of participation in the process.

Under Title IX a school has the responsibility to...

  • Respond promptly and effectively to reports of sexual violence.
  • Quickly investigate to determine what occurred and then take appropriate steps to resolve the situation.
  • A criminal investigation into allegations of sexual violence does not relieve a school of its duty under Title IX to resolve reports promptly and effectively.
  • A school must ensure that the person who experienced the sexual violence is safe, even while an investigation is ongoing.

Throughout the investigation, the Dean of Students Office can assist in changing academic and living situations. Some options available are: reassignment of the victim/perpetrators residence hall(s), restriction of the perpetrator from the victim's residence hall, a mutual no contact order between parties, and assistance with class schedules.

Some disciplinary actions that can be taken against the perpetrator, if they are found responsible, are:

College student discipline is one of many tools that the University can use to foster the personal development of its students. In cases where a student engages in nonacademic misconduct, the disciplinary process is also a tool that the institution may use to protect the safety of the University community. While the disciplinary process does adjudicate misconduct, it is not a legal system. The disciplinary process does not use the same procedures, burdens of proof, or rules of evidence as the legal systems. In order to maintain an educational tone, the University takes steps to ensure that the process is an non-adversarial as possible, while still safeguarding the rights of students.
The nonacademic misconduct process is an integral part of the educational mission and goals of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and Division of Student Affairs. The Dean of Students Office oversees and implements the nonacademic misconduct process.
The nonacademic misconduct process is designed to provide and help maintain an educational atmosphere with emphasis on developing individual understanding and acceptance of personal and social responsibilities; creating a sense of belonging within a welcoming environment; and challenging and supporting students to reflect, integrate, and act upon their college experience. The Dean of Students Office seeks to employ a compassionate, educational, and supportive approach to the student misconduct process - a philosophy that seeks to guide behavior for the common good while respecting the rights and responsibilities of all members of the University community.
