Sexual Assault and
Interpersonal Violence
• Sexual Assault
Any forced or coerced sexual intercourse or contact. It is a crime of violence
in which assailants, whether known to the victim or not, are motivated by a
desire to humiliate and/or exert power over the victim. In short, any sexual
contact that is not wanted is Sexual Assault. There are four degrees of
Sexual Assault in Wisconsin.
• Consent
Consent means words or overt actions by a person who is competent to give
informed consent indicating a freely given agreement to have sexual
intercourse or sexual contact.
Consent of all parties is a critical factor that distinguishes acceptable
sexual behavior from unacceptable sexual behavior.
Consent is communicated through mutually understandable words or
actions that indicate willingness by all of the involved parties to engage in
the same sexual activity, at the same time, and in the same way.
Can They Give Consent?
Any person…
… who is incapacitated due to the use of alcohol or other drugs
… unconscious or for any reason is physically incapacitated
… who is mentally impaired
… who is less than 18 years of age
… who has experienced the implicit or explicit use of force,
coercion, threats, and/or intimidation
Interpersonal Violence
Stalking is defined as engaging in a course of conduct directed at a
specific person that would cause a reasonable person to:
Fear for his/her safety or the safety others; or
• Suffer substantial emotional distress
Domestic Violence
Violence committed by a current or former spouse of the victim, by a
person with whom the victim shares a child in common, by a person
who is similarly situated to a spouse of the victim under the domestic or
family violence laws of the jurisdiction, or by any other person against
an adult or youth who is protected from the person’s acts under the
domestic or family violence laws of the jurisdiction.
(Roommates may fall under this definition)
Interpersonal Violence
Dating Violence
Dating violence is any purposeful act of violence perpetuated
against a dating partner, which may include sexual assault,
physical abuse and psychological or emotional abuse.
Sexual Harassment
Includes unwanted sexual advances, requests for sexual favors
and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature.
A complete definition, as well as complaint and grievance procedures on
sexual harassment, can be found on the Dean of Students’ website
(publications page) under the Community Rights and Responsibility
Handbook. You may also refer to Wisconsin State Statue 947.013.
Sexual Assault/Interpersonal
Violence Statistics
UW System - 2012: Two-hundred eighty-five (285) sexual
assaults reported, 153 of which were acquaintances.
UW-Stevens Point - 2012: Nine (9) sexual assaults reported
National statistics indicate that 1 in 5 young women
experience sexual assault during college. For between 80%
and 90% - the victim and assailant know each other. Half
of the student victims do not label the incident “Sexual
Assault.” This is particularly true when alcohol is involved
and there is no weapon or signs of physical injury.
Sexual Assault/Interpersonal
Violence Statistics
Women ages 16 to 24 years of age are most at risk for
dating and domestic violence. Approximately 70% of
college students say they have been sexually coerced in a
dating relationship.
Between 25% to 33% of LGBT relationships include dating
or domestic violence, a rate equal to heterosexual
In a national survey of college women, 13% said that they
had been stalked. (In the U.S. 8% of women and 2% of men
reported being stalked at some point in their lifetimes.)
Working with Parents
• FERPA (Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act)
Now that your student is in college, the ownership of access to student
academic records is transferred directly to your son or daughter.
• According to FERPA, college students are considered responsible adults
and are allowed to determine who will receive information about them.
• The best way to for you as a parent to receive academic information is for
your son/daughter to provide it to you. At UWSP, we believe that this
communication will foster long term growth in relationships.
• The University does not have a standard FERPA release form.
• Personal Challenges, Crisis, Emergency
• Campus Emergencies and Crisis Response
In some cases information may be disclosed with parents if the STUDENT
has signed a release with an individual department or unit.
