A collection of information items relating to the affirmative action, health
and safety of students and/or staff.
Two major social issues have been emphasized that require our attention and response-sexual assault and harassment and the abuse of alcohol and other drugs. The resulting problems affect everyone-victims, families of victims, friends, coworkers and our communities.
Recognizing the seriousness of these problems in our communities, the Wisconsin State Legislature and the U.S. Congress passed the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990, requiring colleges to provide all students and staff with detailed, written information about one or both issues. The information must include relevant state and federal laws, Moraine Park policies and helping resources.
The intent of the laws is to ensure that you have information about the extent of each problem, the risks involved, the legal standards that have been adopted, and the offices and agencies in the Moraine Park District from which you can seek help. Although the two laws reflect separate issues, the two issues-violence and/or intimidation and alcohol often come together to create major problems.
Moraine Park Technical College has a commitment to protect the physical safety of its students and staff and to eliminate sexual harassment on its campuses. A variety of programs and resources have been established to provide education and assistance to students and staff experiencing difficulties in these areas. We encourage you to become more informed about these issues. Please read this publication carefully. The information presented will help you protect yourself or to assist your friends and families.
