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 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:

  • Crime Victims’ Council of Lehigh Valley (CVC): 610-437-6611
  • Turning Point of Lehigh Valley: 610-437-3369
  • Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN): 1-800-656-4673

Types of Campus Resources for Students

When it comes to resources offered on campus, there are three types: Confidential and Privileged, Confidential, and Non-Confidential. Confidential and privileged resources will not report the incidents to the College unless asked by the reporter to do so. Confidential resources are resources that will not report identifiable information (names, exact locations, etc.) but are required to report basic information to the College (nature, general location, and date). Non-Confidential resources are required to report to the College.

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 see below.
