- Every student and employee in the University of Wisconsin System would have to undergo online training on sexual violence and harassment issues under a plan that regents are expected to approve Thursday.
The regents' sexual harassment policy hasn't been updated since 1987. System President Ray Cross asked a task force in 2014 to come up with recommendations for revisions.
The task force's changes include mandatory online training for every system student and employee as well as more in-depth training for executives, supervisors, department heads and others involved in handing out discipline.
The policy also unequivocally states that no instructor may start a relationship with his or her student and relationships between employees in which one has authority over the other are prohibited unless the employee with authority reports the relationship and takes steps to mitigate the potential conflict.
