The University of Wisconsin athletic department is investigating how photos and videos of the women's volleyball team were leaked without the players' consent. 

A statement from UW Athletics posted to Twitter said that the department is aware that "private photos and video of  UW volleyball student-athletes that were never intended to be shared publicly are being circulated digitally."

“The unauthorized sharing is a significant and wrongful invasion of the student-athletes’ privacy, including potential violations of university policies and criminal statutes,” the statement from the athletic department said.

According to Channel3000, athletic department officials have contacted the UW-Madison Police Department about the matter. The UWPD is investigating multiple crimes as a result, including the sharing of sensitive photos without consent. 

The athletic department said no team members are being investigated for wrongdoing. 

“Our top priority is supporting our student-athletes and we are providing them with the appropriate services and resources,” the athletic department said.
