The University of Wisconsin’s policy for sexual harassment and sexual assault is in limbo. Governor Tony Evers called the new policy too vague when rejecting it Monday.
In a letter sent to UW System President Ray Cross, Evers wrote he is not approving the system’s scope statement on the proposed changes to the federal Title IX policy, because the statement does not clearly describe what changes the Board of Regents are attempting to make.
Wisconsin is also joining a lawsuit to block new Trump administration rules to provide more protections for those who are accused of harassment or assault. Critics say it’s bad for accusers. Evers prefers the rules enacted during the Obama Administration.
