Why was Executive Order #54 created?

Currently, the Wisconsin mandatory reporter law requires certain persons such as health practitioners, social workers, law enforcement officers, child care providers, counselors, school teachers and administrators, and, more recently, all school employees, to report child abuse and neglect. University of Wisconsin System employees are generally not mandatory reporters of child abuse and neglect under state law. Executive Order #54, however, makes all University of Wisconsin System employees mandatory reporters of child abuse and neglect.
