Public Safety Update

Madison Area Technical College’s Sexual Misconduct policy and procedures apply to all students, employees, visitors, and independent contractors, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity; and it applies both to on-campus as well as off-campus conduct that would impact the learning environment.

After a sexual assault, victims often sense a loss of control. This is normal. Know that there are people on and off campus who will offer support and can help you make the decisions that are right for you to take care of yourself. It is important to remember that you have choices. There is no one right way to take care of yourself. If you or someone you know are a victim of sexual assault or dating violence, please contact Public Safety at 608-245-2222. You can tell us.
