The University of Wisconsin—Madison oversees many different types of youth activities. Some of these youth activities include residential programs, commuter programs, one-day activities, internships, or 4-H events.
These youth activities are required to comply with various campus policies, state laws, and federal laws. One of those laws is Title IX, which protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities. Additionally, the UW—Madison Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence prohibits sexual misconduct, and outlines ways to support those who experience sexual misconduct.
One of the ways that the University provides support is through the Youth & Family Resource Guide. This guide is focused on the needs of youth participating in UW—Madison programs and activities who have experienced sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, or sexual exploitation.
This guide helps youth and families find the tools and support they need, both on and off the UW—Madison campus. It also provides options for confidential resources, such as counseling or advocacy, as well as non-confidential resources, such as law enforcement or Child Protective Services.
There are additional support options for youth and families, including protective measures or accommodations. If you have questions about the support and reporting options available to you or your family, please contact the Deputy Title IX Coordinator for Precollege & Youth Programs at email@example.com.
