Off-Campus counselors and advocates
Off-campus counselors, advocates, and health care providers will also generally maintain confidentiality and not share information with the University unless the victim requests the disclosure and signs a consent or waiver form.

Take Back the Night and other public awareness events
Public awareness events such as “Take Back the Night,” candlelight vigils, protests, “survivor speak outs” or other forums in which students disclose incidents of sexual violence,
are not considered notice to the University of sexual violence for purposes of triggering its obligation to investigate any particular incident(s)
. Such events may, however, inform the need for campus-wide education and prevention efforts, and the University will provide information about students’ Title IX rights at these events.
Q: Does contacting the police mean I have to press charges?
A: No. You do not have to press charges if you call the police. However, if the sexual assault occurred on campus, Pitt-Bradford Police will initiate an investigation.
Q: If I report a sexual assault, will my name become public? What happens to the information?
A: Security personnel will file an anonymous record of any on-campus assault among Pitt-Bradford’s crime statistics in order to give an accurate representation of crime on campus and to help prevent further crimes of this nature. In general, campus and city of Bradford newspapers and other media outlets do not reveal names of victims of sexual assault.
Q: Do I have to get medical attention?
Although you are not required to seek medical care, it is highly encouraged. Taking care of your physical and medical state is an important role in the healing process. You may have internal or external injuries as a result of an assault that require medical care. Additionally, you may want to explore options for preventing sexually transmitted diseases and/or pregnancy. The Student Health Service has staff that can confidentially assess pregnancy risk; test and treat for STDs; and assess, treat, and/or refer for physical injuries.
