  2. Consider environmental risk and protective factors as they occur on the individual, relationship, institutional, community and societal levels.

MCW has developed and implemented educational programming, consisting of primary prevention and awareness programs for all incoming students and new employees, and ongoing awareness and prevention campaigns for students and employees. These programs and campaigns:

  1. Identify and define sex discrimination and examples thereof.
  2. Identify sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking as conduct prohibited by MCW.
  3. Define using definitions provided both by the Department of Education as well as state law as to what behavior that constitutes sex discrimination, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking.
  4. Define what behavior and actions constitute consent to sexual activity in the State of Wisconsin.
  5. Provide a description of safe and positive options for bystander intervention.
  6. Provide Information on risk reduction. Risk reduction means options designed to decrease perpetration and bystander inaction, and to increase empowerment for victims in order to promote safety and to help individuals and communities address conditions that facilitate violence.

For additional information on MCW’s campus educational programs concerning sex discrimination, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, contact the Title IX Coordinator, a Title IX Deputy Coordinator, the Office of Human Resources, Academic Affairs, the Graduate School and/or Public Safety.

Reporting Procedures

A guiding principle in the reporting of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking is to avoid possible re-victimizing of the complainant by mandating a specific course of action. After an incident, it is recommended a person consider each of the following:

  1. If possible, get to a safe place. Ideally, find a secure place where you are not alone, such as the home of nearby friend/family member.
     
  2. In matters involving sexual assault or violence, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Post-assault medical care can be performed at a local hospital emergency department. Many hospitals have specialized examiners who can complete an exam for victims of sexual violence. Such an exam can help the victim receive appropriate medical treatment and preserve evidence for possible future action. In the State of Wisconsin evidence may be collected even if you choose not to make a report to law enforcement. ¹If victims do not opt for forensic evidence collection, health care providers can still treat injuries and take steps to address concerns of pregnancy and/or sexually transmitted infections. Under the Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act of 2005, starting in 2009, states must certify that they do not “require a victim of sexual assault to participate in the criminal justice system or cooperate with law enforcement in order to be provided with a forensic medical exam, reimbursement for charges incurred on account of such an exam, or both.”
     
  3. Preserve any physical evidence. It is important not to bathe, douche, smoke, change clothing or clean the bed/linen/area where you were assaulted (if the assault occurred within the past 72 hours). Place items in a paper bag for possible future action. Also, keep copies of voicemail messages, text messages, instant messages, social networking pages, pictures, emails and any other documents.

    As time passes, evidence may dissipate or become lost or unavailable, thereby making investigation, possible prosecution, disciplinary proceedings, or obtaining protection from abuse orders related to the incident more difficult. If a victim chooses not to make a complaint regarding an incident, he or she nevertheless should consider speaking with Public Safety or law enforcement to preserve evidence in the event that the victim decides to report the incident to law enforcement or MCW Public Safety at a later date to assist in proving that the alleged criminal offense occurred or that may be helpful in obtaining a protection order.
     
  4. Pursue counseling services with the appropriate agencies. Victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, or other abuse can access both campus and community crisis, shelter, and counseling resources.
     
  5. For emergent situation, call 911. Emergencies on the MCW – Milwaukee campus may also be reported to MCW Public Safety at (414) 955-8299. Victims can contact law enforcement agencies directly at:

Assistance for Victims: Rights & Options

Regardless of whether a victim elects to pursue a criminal complaint or whether the offense is alleged to have occurred on or off campus, MCW will assist victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking and will provide each victim with a written explanation of their rights and options. Such written information will include:

  1. The procedures victims should follow if a crime of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking has occurred; (refer to pages 38 & 39 of this report for information on reporting procedures)
  2. Information about how the institution will protect the confidentiality of victims and other necessary parties;
  3. A statement that the institution will provide written notification to students and employees about victim services within the institution and in the community;
  4. A statement regarding the institution’s provisions about options for, available assistance in, and how to request accommodations and protective measures; and
  5. An explanation of the procedures for institutional disciplinary action.
Rights of Victims and the Institution's Responsibilities for Orders of Protection, “No Contact” Orders, Restraining Orders, or Similar Lawful Orders Issued by a Criminal, Civil, or Tribal Court or by the Institution

The Medical College of Wisconsin complies with Wisconsin law in recognizing temporary restraining orders and no contact orders. Any person who obtains a temporary restraining order or no contact order from the State of Wisconsin, or any other state, should provide a copy to MCW Public Safety and the Office of the Title IX Coordinator. If a person has a valid Wisconsin no contact order that meets federal standards, it can be enforced in another state. The Violence Against Women Act, which is a federal law, states that all valid Domestic Abuse Restraining Orders granted in the United States receive "full faith and credit" in all state and tribal courts within the US, including US territories.

A complainant may then meet with MCW Public Safety to develop a Safety Action Plan, which is a plan for MCW Public Safety and the victim to reduce risk of harm while on campus or coming and going from campus. This plan may include, but is not limited to: escorts, special parking arrangements, changing classroom and/or location or allowing an individual to work or study from home, etc. MCW cannot apply for a no contact order or temporary restraining order for a victim from the applicable jurisdiction(s).

The victim is required to apply directly for these services in the county with applicable jurisdiction. MCW Public Safety can provide guidance to individuals seeking information on how to apply for a temporary restraining order and/or injunctions.

The Medical College of Wisconsin may issue an institutional no contact order if deemed appropriate or at the request of the victim or accused. If MCW receives a report that such an institutional no contact order has been violated, MCW will initiate disciplinary proceedings appropriate to the status of the accused (student, employee, etc.) and will impose sanctions if the accused is found responsible for violating the no contact order.

Accommodations and Protective Measures Available for Victims

Upon receipt of a report of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault or stalking, the Medical College of Wisconsin will provide written notification to students and employees about accommodations available to them, including academic, transportation and working situations. The written notification will include information regarding the accommodation options, available assistance in requesting accommodations, and how to request accommodations and protective measures.

At the victim’s request, and to the extent of the victim’s cooperation and consent, MCW will work cooperatively to assist the victim in obtaining accommodations. If reasonably available, a victim may be offered changes to academic, working or transportation situations regardless of whether the victim chooses to report the crime to MCW Public Safety or local law enforcement.

Examples of options for a potential change to the academic situation may be to transfer to a different section of a class, withdraw and take a class at another time if there is no option for moving to a different section, etc. Possible changes to work situations may include changing working hours and/or location. Possible changes in transportation may include having the student or employee park in a different location, assisting the student or employee with a safety escort, etc.

To request changes to academic, transportation and/or working situations or protective measures, or to receive assistance in requesting these accommodations, a victim should contact:

MCW Public Safety
Health Research Center, H1820
(414) 955-8295

and/or

MCW's Title IX Coordinator
Research Park Center, Suite 140
(414) 955-8668

These accommodations, and assistance with these accommodations, are available to victims regardless of whether the victim chooses to report the crime to local law enforcement.

Other resources available to persons who report being the victim of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking, include:

There may be consequences to waiting to file a police report. As time passes, evidence may dissipate or become lost or unavailable, thereby making investigations, possible prosecution, disciplinary proceedings, or obtaining protection from abuse orders related to the incident more difficult. If a victim chooses not to make a complaint regarding an incident, he or she should still consider speaking with MCW Public Safety, or law enforcement, to preserve evidence in the event the victim changes his/her mind.

All reports of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assaults or stalking made to MCW Public Safety will automatically be referred to the Title IX Coordinator for investigation regardless of if the complainant chooses to pursue criminal charges. The Title IX related investigation will include a prompt, fair, and impartial investigation and resolution process transparent to the accuser and the accused. Usually the resolution of complaints of sexual misconduct are completed within 60 days of the report however, extensions for good cause, with notice to the accuser and the accused of the delay and the reason for the delay, may be allowed. For additional information, refer to MCW Corporate Policy AD.CC.090 - Investigations into Allegations of Sex Discrimination, Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Datin Violence and Stalking.

Services for Victims

Regardless of whether the complainant chooses to report the incident to the local police department or whether the incident is alleged to have occurred on MCW campus, MCW will assist the complainant by providing him/her with information on resources for victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking; contact information for resources on campus; contact information for local police/sheriff departments; counseling and support resources (including for health and mental health) for MCW students and employees (faculty and staff) and community resources.

MCW will make every effort to accommodate the needs of a victim of sexual assault. When requested by the victim and when reasonably available, changes in an employee’s work location or a student's academic situation may be made. The Director of Employee Relations/Title IX Coordinator and/or the Dean responsible for the school (or designee) will coordinate these changes.

Confidentiality

Victims who are students may request that directory information on file with MCW be withheld by request through the Office of Academic Affairs, (414) 955-3630. Victims who are faculty or staff members may request that directory information on file with MCW be withheld by request through the Office of Human Resources, (414) 955-8374.

Regardless of whether a victim has opted-out of allowing MCW to share “directory information,” personally identifiable information about the victim and other necessary parties will be treated as confidential and only shared with persons who have a specific need-to-know, i.e., those who are investigating/adjudicating the report or those involved in providing support services to the victim, including accommodations and protective measures. By only sharing personally identifiable information with individuals on a need-to-know basis, the institution will maintain as confidential, any accommodations or protective measures provided to the victim to the extent that maintaining such confidentiality would not impair the ability of the institution to provide the accommodations or protective measures.

MCW does not publish the name of crime victims or other identifiable information regarding victims in the Daily Crime Log or in the annual crime statistics that are disclosed in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. Furthermore, if a Timely Warning Notice is issued on the basis of a report of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault or stalking, the name of the victim and other personally identifiable information about the victim will be withheld.

Dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking are criminal acts which may also subject the perpetrator to criminal and civil penalties under federal and state law. MCW will protect the identity of persons who report having been victims of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking to the fullest extent of the law and as previously mentioned in this document.

Disclosures and Investigative Process

MCW Corporate Policy No. AD.CC.090 entitled Investigations into Allegations of Sex Discrimination, Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence and Stalking applies to all employees (faculty, staff, and post-doctoral fellows), students and third parties. This policy provides the procedures that MCW will follow when it receives allegations of sexual assault, sexual harassment, sex discrimination, domestic violence, dating violence or stalking by/of an MCW faculty, staff member or student and applies to reports of violations by an MCW student, employee or third party.

Policy

MCW is committed to creating and sustaining a safe learning and working environment that recognizes and values the dignity of all members of the MCW community. In furtherance of this commitment and as more fully described below, MCW prohibits, in the work place and in all education and other programs, sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, and sex discrimination (collectively “Prohibited Offenses”). Sexual harassment and sexual violence are forms of sex discrimination.

The policy is intended to implement the above-stated commitment; outline reporting, investigation and complaint resolution procedures in cases where a MCW faculty, staff member, or student is alleged to have committed one of the Prohibited Offenses involving another student; and describe available resources for victims of a Prohibited Offense.

In the event MCW receives a report that a member of the MCW faculty, staff or student body is alleged to have committed a Prohibited Offense, and regardless of the complainant’s or respondent’s sex, gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity, MCW will promptly investigate the allegation in accordance with the policy. If the reported sex discrimination is made by an employee and does not involve a student, MCW’s Corporate Policy AD.CC.050 - Anti-Harassment and Non-Discrimination will be used.

An individual who believes he/she has been subjected to a Prohibited Offense, in violation of MCW Corporate Policy No. AD.CC.080 entitled Prohibition on Sex Discrimination, Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence and Stalking or Corporate Policy No. AD.CC.050 entitled Anti-Harassment and Non-Discrimination is encouraged to and has the right to seek support, utilize available resources, and report his/her concern or complaint.

Procedure

Reporting

Allegations of Prohibited Offenses may be reported to:

  • MCW Title IX Coordinator or one of the Title IX Deputy Coordinators, all of whom are listed on the MCW Sexual Misconduct/Title IX website. MCW’s Title IX Coordinator is Katie Kassulke, Director of Employee Relations/Title IX Coordinator and can be contacted via (414) 955-8668 or TitleIXCoordinator@mcw.edu;
  • Faculty and staff members may report to the Office of Human Resources or to the employee’s immediate supervisor, manager, Department Administrator, Division Chief, or Department Chair;
  • Students may also make a report to the Dean of the student’s school;
  • All MCW employees are responsible employees and must report any information received of a Prohibited Offense to the MCW Title IX Coordinator;
  • MCW Compliance Line – 1 (866) 857-4943 (reports may be provided anonymously); and/or
  • The Office of Civil Rights of the Department of Education (“OCR”) enforces Title IX. In addition to the resources above, inquiries and complaints under Title IX may be directed to ocr@edu.gov, or to the local OCR office; call 1 (800) 421-3481 for local office information. ​

An MCW employee or student may also report any allegation of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking to:

  • Police in the case of emergencies by calling 911.
  • Local law enforcement as listed on the MCW Sexual Misconduct/Title IX website.
  • MCW Public Safety (414) 955-8299. MCW Public Safety will assist in emergent and non-emergent cases.

Information for Allegations Involving Third Parties
MCW’s ability to take action against a person who is not a faculty member, staff member or student (a “Third Party”) who is alleged to have engaged in conduct which violates the MCW Policy on Prohibited Offenses will depend on the nature of the relationship of the Third Party to MCW. MCW will determine the appropriate manner of resolution of allegations against Third Parties based upon MCW’s commitment to a prompt and equitable process consistent with law and the MCW Policy on Prohibited Offenses.

Confidentiality
MCW recognizes the importance of confidentiality, which includes a request by a Complainant that his/her name not be shared with the Respondent, and/or that no investigation be pursued. A person whose rights under the MCW Policy on Prohibited Offenses have been violated may request that MCW comply with his/her desire for confidentiality, which may limit the extent to which MCW can respond effectively to the report. A request to preserve the confidentiality of any party involved in a report should be made to MCW. MCW will consider the request and inform the party of the extent to which confidentiality may be maintained. MCW will make all efforts to maintain confidentiality except where, in MCW’s judgment, maintaining confidentiality would jeopardize the safety of members of the MCW community (including the Complainant) or where MCW is required by law to disclose the information (such as in response to a legal process).

Where MCW determines that a Complainant’s request for confidentiality can be honored, MCW may nevertheless take other appropriate steps designed to eliminate the reported conduct, prevent its recurrence, and remedy its effects on the Complainant and the MCW community. Those steps may include offering appropriate remedial measures to the Complainant, providing targeted training or prevention programs, and/or providing or imposing other remedies tailored to the circumstances.

Where MCW determines that the Complainant’s request for confidentiality cannot be honored, MCW shall take any appropriate interim measures and offer the Complainant an opportunity to utilize the processes available under the policy. If the Complainant does not wish to utilize those processes, the Title IX Coordinator may proceed pursuant to the policy.

All participants (including the Complainant and Respondent, witnesses, advisors, investigators and appeal adjudicators) in any part of the processes set forth in the policy are expected to respect the sensitivity of the proceedings and circumstances giving rise to the report.

Advisors
Complainants and Respondents are permitted to have the assistance of one advisor throughout the processes described in the policy. The advisor’s role in any meeting is limited to quietly conferring with the Complainant or Respondent through written correspondence or whisper. Advisors may not address any other participant, investigator or decision-maker in writing or otherwise. Advisors shall not serve as witnesses during the processes described in the policy. The advisor may be any person, including an attorney. MCW reserves the right to exclude any individual assisting the Complainant or Respondent who does not follow the aforementioned guidelines or who is otherwise disruptive.

Interim Measures
At any time after the receipt of information covered by the policy, MCW may impose interim measures, including but not limited to, restrictions on contact between the Complainant and the Respondent, a leave of absence, changes to parking areas, exclusion from areas of campus, interim suspensions and/or academic schedule modifications. Complainants and Respondents may request changes to academic or working situations and will be informed as to what changes are reasonably available.

Supportive Resources
MCW encourages Complainants and Respondents to seek counseling and support available through resources listed in:

Information for Complainant
Complainants will be treated with respect before, during, and after any process conducted under the policy. Complainants will be informed of MCW’s processes under the policy as well as possible outcomes. MCW will communicate to the Complainant regarding the investigation as MCW deems appropriate. The alleged policy violation may also be criminal in nature, and Complainants have the right to report such conduct to the local police department or any other appropriate law enforcement agency. A criminal report, or lack thereof, does not impact MCW’s investigative and disciplinary action under the policy. Additionally, regardless of whether a Complainant pursues a criminal complaint and/or the options available under this policy, MCW may choose to investigate or take mitigating actions with respect to the reported policy violation and will take appropriate responsive action to uphold the integrity of its ongoing commitments described herein.

Remedies available to the Complainant hereunder include, but are not limited to, reasonable academic accommodations and request for a no contact order. MCW may take disciplinary action against the Respondent if determined he/she is responsible for committing a Prohibited Offense under to the policy, as well as any other action MCW deems appropriate and in compliance with institutional guidelines, school policies (as applicable), and the law.

MCW encourages Complainants to seek counseling and support available through the resources listed in:

Information for Respondent
Respondents will be treated with respect before, during and after any process conducted under the policy. Respondents will be informed of MCW’s processes under the policy as well as possible outcomes. MCW will communicate to the Respondent regarding the investigation as MCW deems appropriate. Note that alleged behavior may also be criminal in nature, and the Respondent may be subject to a criminal investigation by the appropriate law enforcement agency at the same time as an investigation by MCW under the policy. The Respondent can expect a presumption of innocence throughout any process conducted hereunder unless and until they are found responsible for a violation of the MCW Policy on Prohibited Offenses.

The Respondent has the right to (and is strongly encouraged to) seek counseling and support through MCW and local resources.

The Respondent may request changes to academic situations and will be notified as to what changes are reasonably available.

Complaint Resolution

Facilitated Resolution

In the event an investigation is initiated, the investigation and resolution will be tailored to the specific facts of the case, and will be prompt, fair and impartial. MCW expects truthfulness and cooperation from all individuals involved in activities conducted under the policy. Any false information provided or obstruction into the investigation process by any party will be viewed as a serious violation of the policy and may subject the non-compliant individual(s) to discipline in accordance with the applicable institutional policy.

  1. Time Frames

MCW will make all efforts to resolve complaints made under this policy within sixty (60) calendar days from receipt of the same. Certain circumstances may require extensions of this timeframe, which MCW may make in its sole discretion. An extension may be necessary in instances of complex cases, delays due to semester or holiday breaks, inclement weather, or other circumstances. This timeframe, and any exceptions thereto, will be promptly communicated to the Complainant and Respondent.

  1. Investigation

An investigation will be conducted by an investigator(s) as determined appropriate by MCW. The Title IX Coordinator may serve as an investigator. In MCW’s sole discretion, a qualified external individual(s) may serve as an investigator(s).

    • Students: administrative leave of absence, disciplinary actions including probation pursuant to the student handbook, drug / alcohol testing as appropriate, restricted access, monitoring, no contact order(s), suspension, and/or other educational sanctions including but not limited to expulsion. In the event the sanction of expulsion is deemed appropriate, the student subject to the sanction will have the right to appeal using a modified version of the process set forth in the student handbook which may be modified to the extent necessary to comply with applicable law.
    • Faculty: administrative leave of absence, letter of non-renewal, restricted access, monitoring, no contact orders, drug/alcohol testing, and/or other sanctions as determined appropriate by MCW and in accordance with applicable institutional guidelines and policies, up to and including discipline, suspension or termination for cause. In the event the sanction of termination for cause is deemed appropriate, the faculty member subject to the sanction will have the right to appeal using the process set forth in the Faculty Handbook which may be modified to the extent necessary to comply with applicable law.
    • Staff: administrative leave of absence, recommended counseling, restricted access, monitoring, no contact orders, drug/alcohol testing, and/or other sanctions as determined appropriate by MCW and in accordance with institutional guidelines, including but not limited to discipline, suspension or termination.

The Complainant and Respondent will promptly and concurrently be provided a copy of the finding, rationale and any sanctions by MCW.

Training
Individuals serving as investigators, Title IX Coordinator, or Title IX Deputy Coordinators under this policy shall receive training on the issues of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, and how to conduct an investigation process that protects the safety of the MCW community and promotes accountability. The Title IX Coordinator and Title IX Deputy Coordinators’ names and contact information are provided on the MCW Sexual Misconduct/Title IX website. MCW may select faculty or other MCW employees or individuals to serve as an investigator as needed and in MCW’s sole discretion. The Complainant and Respondent will be informed of the identities of the investigator(s).

Retaliation
Retaliation by or against anyone named or involved in a report or an investigation, or a process under the policy, is strictly prohibited. Reports of retaliation should be made immediately to the Title IX Coordinator or a Title IX Deputy Coordinator.

How to be an Active Bystander

Bystanders play a critical role in the prevention of sexual and relationship violence. Bystanders are defined as individuals who observe violence or witness the conditions that perpetuate violence. They are not directly involved but have the choice to intervene, speak up, or do something about it.

If you or someone else is in immediate danger on campus, call MCW Public Safety at (414) 955-8299) or 9-911. Below is a list of some ways to be an active bystander:

  • Watch out for your friends and fellow students/employees. If you see someone who looks like they are in trouble, ask if they are ok.
  • Confront people who seclude, hit on, try to make out with, or have sex with people who are incapacitated.
  • Speak up when someone discusses plans to take advantage of another person.
  • Believe someone who discloses sexual assault, abusive behavior, or experience with stalking.
  • Refer people to on or off campus resources listed in this document for support in health, counseling, or with legal assistance.
Risk Reduction Strategies

With no intent to victim blame and recognizing that only perpetrators are responsible for sexual violence, the following are some strategies to reduce one’s risk of sexual assault or harassment (taken from Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network, www.rainn.org)

  • Be aware of your surroundings. Knowing where you are and who is around you may help you to find a way to get out of a bad situation.
  • Try to avoid isolated areas. It is more difficult to get help if no one is around.
  • Walk with purpose. Even if you don’t know where you are going, act like you do.
  • Trust your instincts. If a situation or location feels unsafe or uncomfortable, it probably isn’t the best place to be. If you see something suspicious, contact law enforcement immediately (local authorities can be reached by calling 911 in most areas of the U.S.).
  • Don't allow yourself to be isolated with someone you don’t trust or someone you don’t know.
  • Avoid putting music headphones in both ears so that you can be more aware of your surroundings, especially if you are walking alone.
  • When you go to a social gathering, go with a group of friends.   Arrive together, check in with each other throughout the evening, and leave together. Knowing where you are and who is around you may help you to find a way out of a bad situation.
  • Don't leave your drink unattended while talking, dancing, using the restroom, or making a phone call. If you’ve left your drink alone, just get a new one.
  • Don't accept drinks from people you don't know or trust. If you choose to
    accept a drink, go with the person to the bar to order it, watch it being poured, and carry it yourself. At parties, don’t drink from the punch bowls or other large, common open containers.
  • Watch out for your friends, and vice versa. If a friend seems out of it, is way too intoxicated for the amount of alcohol they’ve had, or is acting out of character, get him or her to a safe place immediately.
  • Make sure your cell phone is with you and charged and that you have cab
    money.
  • If you and/or the other person have been drinking, you can say that you would rather wait until you both have your full judgment before doing anything you may regret later.
