Executive Order 54

In December 2011, the Governor issued Executive Order #54 requiring all University of Wisconsin System employees to immediately report child abuse or neglect if the employee, in the course of employment, observes an incident or threat of child abuse or neglect, learns of an incident or threat of child abuse or neglect, or has reasonable cause to believe that child abuse or neglect will occur. Please refer to UW Green Bay’s Policy on the Reporting of Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect for specific responsibilities and reporting requirements.
