Supportive Resources

 

On behalf of President Dale-Elizabeth Pehrsson and the Edinboro University administration, we strongly encourage members of the campus community to report incidents involving acts of discrimination, behavior or conduct of harassment and intimidation, institutional vandalism, acts or threats of violence, and other kinds of threatening or intimidating behavior. Incidents should be reported to one of the following campus offices:

These campus offices communicate with one another as appropriate and, if necessary, will refer the report to the proper office for handling the incident.

Counseling

Upon request, counseling is available to any employee or student who believes that she or he has been subjected to any form of sexual harassment, including sexual violence. Current University students may contact Counseling and Psychological Services or Student Health Services located in the Ghering Health and Wellness Center, 300 Scotland Road, at 814-732-2743. Current University employees may obtain counseling services through the State Employees Assistance Program (SEAP) at 800-692-7459.
