Welcome to the SHARE Office

Welcome to the Office of Sexual Harassment and Assault Response and Education, also known as SHARE.   Sexual harassment and sexual violence have no place on our campus.   To help advance our goal of eradicating sexual misconduct, SHARE offers resources to help all members of our University community report, cope with, and prevent incidents of sexual misconduct or assault.

Important Legislation

“You may have seen the recent report of new PA legislation, HB 1615, which will require universities and schools to maintain an online anonymous reporting system.   Pitt applauds this legislation, and would like to take it as an opportunity to remind the community of its online reporting system which has been in operation since 2016.   We encourage all members of our community to report incidents of sexual harassment or misconduct.   You can contact the Title IX office directly, or may report using the form which allows for anonymous reports.

This new legislation also requires schools and universities to provide that someone making a good faith report will not be sanctioned for personal use of drugs or alcohol.   Like the anonymous reporting system, Pitt is already engaging in this best practice, and the Student Code of Conduct includes a provision.

All questions are encouraged regarding these practices or any resources.   Please feel free to contact our office at any time:   412-648-7860”
