Report an Incident of Concern

  • These reporting forms are for non-emergency reporting only. If any person may be in danger, call 911 immediately. For urgent emotional/mental health matters, please call the Crisis Intervention 24/7 Hotline at 1-877-333-2470.

    Reports submitted through the links below are addressed through a coordinated university approach. Based on the type of report, you may be contacted for additional information. Anonymous reporting is available for certain University Police and Sexual Misconduct incidents—though these are permitted, please note that doing so may limit the university’s ability to investigate and/or respond.

    A Note About Retaliation: IUP strictly prohibits retaliation against any individual who makes a good faith report of suspected wrongful conduct or participates in an investigation, hearing, or inquiry. Retaliatory behavior should be reported and will be addressed through the appropriate university process.
