Civil Rights & Title IX Compliance

The Office of Civil Rights and Title IX is here to assist in responding to and addressing reports of harassment and discriminations. Our office oversees policies and processes to respond to bias incidents. We also provide education and training on prevention and reduction of discrimination and harassment. Together we can work to maintain an educational and work environment that is free from unlawful harassment and discrimination. Incident reporting and response is a critical component of building that culture.

Make a Report

The University is committed to maintaining an environment free from unlawful discrimination or harassment and your reports enable the University to assess the campus climate and promptly respond to incidents. We encourage you to report incidents of bias involving a member of the University of Pittsburgh community.

Title IX Resources

The University of Pittsburgh offers both University and community resources to students, staff, and faculty who have experienced sexual- or gender-based violence, harassment or discrimination, domestic violence, dating violence, harassment and/or stalking.
