2. Any damages to UW-Whitewater facilities and/or equipment will be assessed to the event. Continuing Education Services will not be responsible for collecting fees for damages from participants. The event is responsible for payment of damages.

7. The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater prioritizes safety and strives to provide a safe learning environment for everyone. Children come into contact with the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater through various programs, camps, and events. On December 19, 2011, the Governor signed Executive Order #54, which requires that all University of Wisconsin System employees must report incidents of child abuse and neglect. In addition, this policy extends that obligation to volunteers and contractors performing services for UW-Whitewater. This policy hereby establishes the requirements that volunteers and contractors performing services for UW-Whitewater abide by the same reporting obligations as employees. Reports must be made personally or by telephone to the University of Wisconsin Whitewater Police Services, County Department of Human/Social Services or to local law enforcement. If, in the course of providing services to UW-Whitewater, a contractor (or its agent or employee) observes an incident of child abuse or neglect, or learns of an incident of child abuse or neglect and the contractor (or its agent or employee) has reasonable cause to believe that child abuse or neglect has occurred or will occur, contractor (or its agent or employee) must make a report of that child abuse or neglect to UW-Whitewater Police Services as provided in UW-Whitewater’s Policy on Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect.
