University of Wisconsin System President calls for zero-tolerance toward sexual misconduct

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — University of Wisconsin System President Ray Cross is calling for a zero-tolerance attitude toward sexual misconduct.

Cross gave a short speech to the Board of Regents on Friday about sexual misconduct. He noted the regents created a new sexual misconduct policy about a year ago.

The policy calls for mandatory online training for all students and employees. It also requires employees who aren't medical or mental health professionals to report to the dean of students if they witness or receive a first-hand report of sexual assault.

Cross says policies are just ink on paper without a zero-tolerance culture. He promised to work with chancellors and campus government groups to build on what's already been done. He didn't elaborate.

System spokeswoman Stephanie Marquis didn't immediately reply to a follow-up email.
