What resources are available to me at PCC and in the community

At PCC

Outreach and Advocacy Project

The Outreach & Advocacy Project provides confidential supportive services to students who have experienced harm. Including:

  • Safety planning
  • Ongoing check ins and support
  • Provide and explain reporting options and advocacy around making a report
  • Attend Title IX interviews/meetings with student
  • Assistance with seeking protective orders, and advocacy around filing
  • Assistance with Address Confidentiality Program paperwork
  • Assistance with Crime Victims Compensation
  • Connection to Community Resources
  • Short term emotional support
  • Other services based on need

Survivors come from all backgrounds regardless of class status, race, ethnicity, ability, gender identity, or spiritual, religious, or faith based identities. We know that dating/intimate partner and sexual violence impacts all of us, whether we have experienced harm directly or someone we know has. PCC has a shared commitment to provide support to our peers and to call an end to this violence.

Identity-Based Resource Centers

You can access support and advocacy at any Women’s Resource Center, Queer Resource Center, Multicultural Center, or Veterans Resource Center, or DREAMers Resource Center on campus.

The staff in these centers do not have to report any information you disclose to any other department on campus. The only exception to this absolute confidentiality is if the disclosure includes child abuse, elder abuse, vulnerable adult abuse, or if a staff member receives a subpoena (court order) for the information to be shared. You can ask staff members more about their reporting obligations.

These spaces are open for students to access all kinds of services such as printing, connection to other support and groups on campus, hygiene supplies, coffee/tea, snacks, or to just relax in a safer space. 

Counseling Services

You can access support through PCC’s Counseling Services on any campus. The staff in these centers do not have to report any information you disclose to any other department on campus. The only exception to this absolute confidentiality is if the disclosure includes child abuse, elder abuse, vulnerable adult abuse, or if a staff member receives a subpoena (court order) for the information to be shared. You can ask staff members more about their reporting obligations.

Accessible Education & Disability Resources

You can access support and advocacy at any Accessible Education & Disability Resources center on any campus. Accessible Education & Disability Resources centers are open for students to access printing, a quiet space where they can study, or where students go to connect with a Disability Practitioner. Through Accessible Education & Disability Resources, students can receive accommodations that help assist them in the classroom and while at PCC in general. 

Office of Student Conduct and Community Support

The Office of Student Conduct and Community Support supports students in navigating institutional and community processes to succeed in the academic environment. You can access support though the Student Conduct and Retention/CARE Team on any campus.

Please Note: Student Conduct and Community Support Coordinators are Responsible Employees and are therefore required to report any disclosures of gender based violence to the Office of Equity and Inclusion, which may prompt an investigation. You can always ask staff members about their reporting obligations.
