Campus Safety Guide
  Academic Year 2009–2010
       September 2009

       Dear Campus Community Member:

       Attached you will find a comprehensive report of the many safety mecha-
       nisms that are in place on the University of Wisconsin–Madison campus.
       This report is part of our on-going effort to inform you of the safety pro-
       grams and services available, the crimes that are reported to our police and
       security personnel, and the steps you can take to maintain a safe and secure
       campus. It is also provided as our compliance document as called for under
       the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990 and subsequent
       amendments that led to its being renamed the Jeanne Clery Act in 1998.

       We in the Offices of the Dean of Students, along with our many campus and
       community partners, take the commission of crimes against our students,
       faculty, staff and visitors very personally. It is our desire to aggressively
       investigate reported crimes and put systems in place to support the victims of crime in our campus com-
       munity. Prevention, however, is the best cure. We all need to make it clear that our persons and property
       are secure and protected by a responsible, vigilant and caring population of involved people who report
       suspicious and unlawful behavior immediately to the University Police Department. Please do your part
       by getting involved.

       In looking at our UW Campus Safety Guide, you will notice that we have experienced a slight decline in
       reported campus crimes, in comparison to past years. This is an achievement not to be overlooked as our
       community is taking an active role in preventing violence on campus and in our larger community. We
       would like to see this trend continue in future years.

       Thank you for the important role you play in keeping our campus and city community safe. We appreci-
       ate and recognize the role that the UW Police, the Student Assistance and Judicial Affairs unit and other
       safety focused offices play on campus. Most importantly, everyone who belongs to our campus commu-
       nity plays a role in campus safety. We encourage you to stay actively engaged in making our campus a
       safer place to belong and take care of your fellow Badgers.

Communication about Campus Crimes

     hrough a variety of media, UW–Madison provides information to students and employees about
     campus security procedures and practices, encourages them to be responsible for their own
     security and the security of others, informs them about crime prevention strategies, and commu-
nicates with the campus community about reported crimes that pose serious threats to students and
employees. This section highlights some of the ways in which campus offices communicate information
about crime on campus.

Violence Prevention at UW–Madison

        s part of its efforts to further campus safety efforts, UW–Madison works actively to respond to the
        threat of and prevent sexual assault and intimate partner violence.
        Violence and the fear of violence can disrupt the working and learning processes of the univer-
sity community. The effects are costly, not only to individual victims, but also to the campus as a whole:
fear replaces safety, doubt replaces confidence, and distraction replaces concentration. The high rates of
victimization experienced by both men and women, paired with acceptance of rape myths, contribute
to campus environments wherein survivors are often estranged from their overall collegiate experience.
Victims experience barriers to academic success, lower graduation rates, social isolation, and ongoing
medical and mental health issues. While campus safety and all forms of violence are deeply concerning on
the university campus, sexual assault, stalking, and intimate partner violence are crimes that require a dis-
tinct set of interventions and preventions. In part, this is due to the insidious nature of sexual and dating
violence, which are largely perpetrated by someone who the victim knows and in many cases, trusts.
