Confidentiality and Reporting Options: A Quick Guide

The University of Pittsburgh at Titusville urges victims of sexual violence to talk to someone and receive the support and care they need, and to report any incident of sexual violence so that it can be addressed.  Regardless of whether you would like to move forward with a formal complaint or report, Pitt-Titusville will provide you with information and support.

The University will strive to maintain confidentiality where lawful.  However, you should know that different employees on campus have different abilities, by law, to maintain confidentiality.  By law, some employees can maintain confidentiality and are not required to report any information about an incident to the Title IX Liaison.  However, other “responsible employees” have the duty to report incidents of sexual violence to appropriate University officials, such as the Title IX Liaison so appropriate steps can be taken to address the situation. 

The following information is intended for students who are 18 years and older.  Confidentiality rules are more limited for minors.
