UWM students file 22 sexual harassment, assault complaints

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — At least 22 University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee students have filed sexual harassment or sexual assault complaints against faculty, instructors, teaching assistants, advisers and supervisors over the last five years.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that 10 of the 22 complaints the college released to the newspaper had sufficient evidence to support the allegations. Nine of the 10 cases involved people who have since been fired, not had their contract renewed or were referred to a school dean for discipline. The 10th case involved a lecturer who had left by the time the finding was made.

Four employees involved in substantiated complaints were in teaching roles, one was a teaching graduate assistant, two were lecturers and one was a staffer who worked in a teaching role.
