What If I Share My Story?

About my experience with sexual violence, relationship violence, or stalking with…

Office for the Prevention of Interpersonal Violence (SPoT—Safe Place tO Talk)


Information you share with SPoT staff or any of the trained student advocates will remain confidential and these staff are not required to report to anyone unless the victim/survivor chooses to report. SPoT staff can support you in a variety of ways. They can help you explore your options, offer free confidential support, assist you in securing campus accommodations, and make referrals to local support organizations. SPoT staff would have to break confidentiality if someone presents with an active plan for suicide, threatens to harm others, a minor or minors are involved, and/or if the alleged perpetrator is a repeat offender.

Glaeser Counseling Center and Health Services


Information you share with counseling center and/or health services will remain confidential. Staff can provide information on STI and pregnancy testing, as well as refer you to Penn Highlands Huntingdon Hospital for a SART (Sexual Assault Exam) examination, which is all free of charge.

Campus Ministries


Clergical staff in the Unity House and Stone Church of the Bretheren are available for pastoral counseling and care.

Title IX Coordinator or Campus Official

Once a report has been filed, the Title IX Coordinator or a Campus Official will pursue an investigation based on the circumstances and extent to which you are interested in participating. Title IX and confidential resources are there if you would like support through the process or have questions.

RAs, tour guides, or other student staff

If you tell a student within their role as a student staff member, they are legally required to report it to Title IX.

The information shared with student staff members is not confidential unless the student staff member works for the SPoT as student advocates and are working in their SPoT capacity during their work hours.

Faculty and staff

By law, faculty and staff are required to report information to the Title IX office. Under Title IX, these individuals are called Responsible Employees. The only exceptions are staff considered confidential employees. For a full list of resources, visit Juniata.edu/spot.



Title IX

Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. The Title IX/Dean of Students Office provides resources and reporting options for students, faculty, and staff to address concerns related to sexual violence and other crimes.

You can choose whether or not you speak to College officials and whether or not you file a formal complaint.

When Title IX receives a report staff will contact you to provide you with campus resources, interim and supportive measures, as well as possibilities for holding the person who harmed you accountable.

Title IX can assist you in receiving supportive measures, including:

  • No contact directives
  • Changing classes
  • Moving residence halls
  • Receiving academic flexibility
  • Priority access to counseling
  • Additional options

Confidentiality may be limited in certain situations, such as those to which you may be deemed a threat to yourself or others. SPoT staff would have to break confidentiality if someone presents with an active plan for suicide, threatens to harm others, a minor or minors are involved, and/or if the accused is a repeat offender.
