Viterbo Speaks Up

Viterbo Speaks Up is a place where students, employees, and family members can report crimes, worrisome behaviors, harassment, sexual violence or assault, hate/bias discrimination, violations of the Viterbo University Student Code of Conduct, and other issues and concerns. Viterbo University is committed to providing a safe, educational environment for all members of our community, and by speaking up, you're helping make that happen.

If this is an emergency, please contact Viterbo Campus Safety and Security (on-campus ext. 3911, off-campus 608-780-1582) or dial 911 prior to filling out one of the forms below.


REPORT A CRIME OR INCIDENT

Creating and maintaining a safe campus community is everyone’s responsibility. If you witness a crime, incident, or violation of the Student Code of Conduct, you can use this form to file a report and notify the appropriate staff. You have the option to report anonymously. This is the same form used by Residence Life and Campus Safety staff.


REPORT A CONCERNING OR WORRISOME BEHAVIOR

When someone we care about is distressed it is hard to know what to do. As a community we can help each other find the resources and help to address the concern at hand. Faculty, staff, students, and family are encouraged to use this online form to report behavior that they perceive as concerning, worrisome, or threatening.


REPORT SEXUAL DISCRIMINATION, VIOLENCE, OR HARASSMENT

Our university community is committed to promoting a learning and working environment where sexual misconduct (including sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, and other forms of misconduct) are not tolerated. Sexual misconduct reports include but are not limited to gender, sex, and sexual orientation. Use this form to file an initial report of sexual misconduct. Information submitted will be sent to Viterbo’s Title IX Coordinators and they will initiate follow-up.


REPORT HATE/BIAS DISCRIMINATION OR HARASSMENT  

Every member of our community has the right to feel safe and included without experiencing hate and bias. A hate/bias incident is any physically or verbally harmful act that is motivated by (or appears to be motivated by, in whole or in part) any of the following factors: race/ethnicity, religion, national origin/immigration/citizenship status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity expression, economic status, language, age, pregnancy or family/marital status, disability, veteran or military status, size, or any other protected identity. Use this form if you were impacted by an incident or were a witness to an incident on or off campus. Information submitted will be sent to the Director of International and Intercultural Student Success, the Assistant Vice President of Student Affairs, and the Interim Provost of Student and Academic Affairs.


REPORT A UNIVERSITY STUDENT CONCERN

Any student of Viterbo University may initiate a concern or grievance regarding a University issue, which may involve an employee, an office, or the manner in which a University policy or procedure has been applied. Viterbo University is committed to an appropriate resolution of any complaints, and your input provides us the opportunity to improve our services.
