A sexual assault occurred Sunday on Langdon Street, the same day members of “We’re Better Than That” - Men Against Sexual Assault posted a video about changing Greek life culture.

Sexual assault reportedly occurred Sunday on Langdon Street

A sexual assault occurred early Sunday morning between 12:45 a.m and 1:30 a.m. in a fraternity house on Langdon Street, according to a campus-wide UW-Madison crime warning.

A third party reported the sexual assault to the UW-Madison Police Department, and no further details have been released.

This is the third sexual assault crime warning of the semester. Around 3 p.m. Sunday, the UW-Madison student organization “We’re Better Than That” - Men Against Sexual Assault said in a video that they, along with leaders from Greek life, were taking a stand against sexual assault at UW-Madison.

The video said more than 25 percent of female undergraduate students at UW-Madison reported being sexually assaulted, and that these assaults disproportionately occurred at Greek life events.

UW-Madison students in the video stressed the need to open a dialogue to change the culture of Greek life to reduce sexual violence.

“We should actually be blaming the culture that young men grow up in, to where they know they won’t be questioned about the issues of sexual assault,” UW-Madison senior and member of Alpha Phi Alpha Kenneth Cole said in the video.

UPDATE April 4, 10:33 p.m.: This story was updated to include a link to the referenced video.
