New policies in place at UW Madison athletic department after Rose Bowl incident

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The UW Madison athletic department is packing a lot gear to take to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl in eight days.

But one thing they won’t be taking this time is alcohol.

That’s after what happened a year ago, when former associate athletic director John Chadima allegedly molested a student during a Rose Bowl party he hosted with money from boosters.

Chadima resigned in January, after a party for athletic student workers at a team hotel in Los Angeles last December 30th.

In May, the UW approved an interim policy which governs the use of alcohol at athletic department events both on-and-off the Madison campus. 

It forbids alcohol from events like team banquets, letter presentations, and graduation programs. Beer and booze are allowed at other events – but taxpayer money cannot be used, and student athletes and managers cannot be served, even if they’re with their parents.

UW Madison said Chadima violated previous alcohol policies – and they were given a review after athletic director Barry Alvarez said the department’s oversight appeared to get lax.
