If you or anyone else is in immediate danger, call 911 or the University Police 814-863-1111 immediately.
It can be difficult to decide whether to report an incident or issue to the police and/or university staff. Advocates at the Gender Equity Center can help you to sort through your options and educate you about reporting procedures. Advocates can also support you through the process of reporting. Whether or not you decide to report an incident or issue, you are entitled to receive confidential emotional support and assistance through the University.
If you would like to make a report now, you have several options:
2. File a report in person with the Office for Sexual Misconduct Prevention & Response
