Get involved

As a faculty or staff member, you may be the first point of contact for a victim of sexual misconduct. You may also become aware of sexual misconduct from a source other than the victim. Please note that Marquette University and its employees are subject to various state and federal reporting laws. In short, you must immediately report all cases of sexual assault, stalking, relationship violence or sexual harassment, as well as any other crimes, to the Department of Public Safety. You are strongly encouraged to also contact Marquette’s Victim Advocate. If you have questions about your role in reporting an incident, please contact Public Safety.

Be sure the person disclosing information to you understands your obligation to report this information to Public Safety. By law, all criminal sexual misconduct must be reported by Public Safety to the Milwaukee Police Department.

Due to the sensitive nature of sexual misconduct, it is crucial that you offer support and refer the victim to the appropriate professional services. Be sure to get permission from the victim before calling these support service personnel or their offices.
