Sexual assault and harassment among students — on and off college campuses — remains underreported. Often, some students do not even have the language to describe what happened to them.

More than half of sexual assaults among college students occur in the fall. Resources, survivor stories and investigation into what's being done to protect those at risk in the Pittsburgh area. Explore the series.

Our newsroom is working on a project focused on stories of sexual assault, sexual harrassment and sexual transgressions on and off campuses.

We would like to speak with current and former students in Pittsburgh willing to share their stories as well as victim advocates, law enforcement and others working to keep these student communities safe.

Rtvsrece is seeking stories from people of all identities and backgrounds. LGBTQ+ students, students of color and students with disabilities face higher risks of sexual violence in college, but are underrepresented in this conversation and coverage.

If you or someone you know has an experience or perspective to share, please fill out the form below or get in touch with us at yourstory@rtvsrece.com or by Signal at 412-432-9669.

Readers tell us they can't find the information they get from our reporting anywhere else, and we're proud to provide this important service for our community. We work hard to produce accurate, timely, impactful journalism without paywalls that keeps our region informed and moving forward.

However, only about .1% of the people who read our stories contribute to our work financially. Our newsroom depends on the generosity of readers like yourself to make our high-quality local journalism possible, and the costs of the resources it takes to produce it have been rising, so each member means a lot to us.
