Ward issues statement on third Chadima allegation

February 9, 2012

Here is a statement issued today (Thursday, Feb. 9) by Interim Chancellor David Ward:

“I have been informed by the University of Wisconsin Police Department (UWPD) that it is investigating a third allegation involving John Chadima and an adult male. The UWPD deems the allegation to be credible.

As previously stated, university police continue to investigate all allegations of sexual impropriety or abuse of power brought to their attention.

We are urging anyone who may have been a victim or anyone with information about inappropriate conduct by Mr. Chadima to come forward. We continue to urge victims and people with information to contact the UWPD — regardless of when or where the alleged inappropriate conduct took place — by phone at 608-262-2957 or by email at uwpolice@mhub.uwpd.wisc.edu.

An alternative reporting arrangement can be made by contacting former Dane County Circuit Court Judge Patrick Fiedler at 608-262-3017 or by email at report@general.wisc.edu.”
