Confidentiality Quick Guide

  •  The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford urges victims of sexual violence to talk to someone and receive the support and care that they need, and to report any incident of sexual violence so that it can be addressed.

    The University will strive to maintain confidentiality where lawful. However, you should know that different employees on campus have different abilities 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. Even these employees, however are permitted to share information on a need-to-know basis or as required by law.

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