How to report issues at UW-Madison including hate or bias, sexual assault, hazing and students of concern.

Types of misconduct

Whether its a feeling that cheating might have taken place, or something more serious, misconduct is typically handled on two ways: Academic or Non-Academic.  The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards are the people who help guide faculty, staff and students through these situations.
