In January 2015, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf launched the statewide It’s On Us PA campaign to address sexual assault on college campuses. Wolf’s administration has taken significant steps in 2016 to raise awareness about rape culture and sexual violence on campus through roundtable discussions, special events, and a strong student outreach. His administration also awarded grants to 36 colleges and universities in Pennsylvania for building strategic plans to combat campus sexual assault.
Campus Eye is proud to be partnering with the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, one of the 36 colleges and universities, to help students report a sexual assault anonymously and confidentially. One of the main goals of It’s On Us PA is to “remove/reduce barriers that prevent survivors from reporting and/or accessing vital resources by creating a more consistent, empowering reporting process for student survivors of gender-based violence.”
With Campus Eye, the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford is fulfilling their obligation to break down reporting barriers on campus. Survivors and witnesses are enabled to report incidents using their smartphone. It is easy-to-use and efficient compared to an online form, which may deter students from reporting the incident altogether. Campus Eye also provides survivors and witnesses with immediate access to helpful resources such as Title IX information, confidential contacts, and campus sexual assault prevention groups.
