Pratt Institute’s top priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our entire university community. Reporting acts of sexual harassment or assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking allows the university to take immediate steps to investigate the incident(s) and enhance the safety of our community.
You can also file a report or formal complaint with the university by contacting the Title IX Coordinator:
If you have experienced sexual harassment or assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking, your well-being is of our utmost concern, and we hope that you will get the care you need by accessing resources available to you. You may contact any confidential resource for access to support and care and for guidance in understanding your reporting options. Confidential resources will not convey any identifying information to any university official, except in rare circumstances, without explicit permission.
Professional, licensed counselors and pastoral counselors (ordained clergy) whose official responsibilities include providing mental-health counseling to Institute students, including those who act in that role under the supervision of a licensed counselor, are not required to report any information about an incident of sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator without the survivor’s permission. State law requires professional counselors to report: (i) when a patient is likely to engage in conduct that would result in serious harm to the patient or to others; or (ii) if there is reasonable cause to suspect that a minor has been sexually abused.
