Resources for Help - When You Need to Talk to Someone for Support

For emergencies, crisis situations, or immediate/24 hour assistance, call the Department of Public Safety (717-337-6911). To report an incident of sexual assault, physical assault, or any misconduct (non-emergency), use the College's online electronic reporting tool:



Confused about which offices and resources are confidential, and which are not? Use the college's Reporting and Resource Flowchart to help you make an informed decision.


Make a report online with Gettysburg College's Community Concern Form. Use of this form could be appropriate for reporting (non-emergency) bias incidents, crime tips, harassment (including sexual harassment), hazing, sexual assault or sexual misconduct, and general student (CARE), employee, or faculty concerns. Do NOT use this form to report time-sensitive or urgent matters. Community Concern Form submissions are NOT anonymous. Privacy will be maintained throughout the investigation to the extent possible, however, consistent with the College's need to undertake a full investigation.
