I Want to Talk to Someone

If you or someone you know may have experienced an incident of sexual misconduct, please know that help is available.  Reaching out for support is a great step towards healing.  There are resources available that are prepared to sensitively work with survivors.

If you’d like to speak with a confidential professional immediately please contact one of these 24/7 resources:

  • On-call psychologist may be accessed by contacting Public Safety (610-436-3311).
  • Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN) [1-800-656-4673
  • Crime Victims’ Center of Chester County (CVC) [610-692-7273

Types of Resources

When it comes to resources offered on campus, there are three types: Confidential and PrivilegedConfidential, and Non-Confidential.  Confidential and privileged resources will not report the incidents to the university. Confidential resources are resources that will not report the name of the survivor but are required to report basic information to the University.  Non-Confidential resources are resources that are required to report incidents to the university.

While each resource has something different to offer survivors, it is important to keep in mind that there is no right or wrong choice.  For further details about these resources and for other options please visit the Resources page.

Confidential and Privileged Resource

  • Counseling and Psychological Services [610-436-2301]

Non-Confidential Resources

If you discuss an act of sexual misconduct with a university employee such as an RA, a professor, or a coach they are required to report the incident to the Title IX office/Office of Social Equity.  The Title IX office will then reach out to you – it will be your choice whether or not you chose to discuss the incident with the Title IX coordinator.
