iCare

The I Care Team is made up of a group of Washington & Jefferson College staff and faculty who are interested in the safety and welfare of each member of the W&J community as a whole. Please know that any information you submit will be handled confidentially, with the purpose of assisting the student you have named. Although we do accept "anonymous" reports, we encourage you provide your name and contact information so we can follow-up with you about any additional information that may be needed to assist in the best way possible.
 

If this is an emergency:

  • STOP; please call Protection Services immediately at (724) 223-6032.
  • The I Care submission is not designed to notify emergency responders.

Outline

Useful information includes:

  • Your name and contact information.  (Optional, but very helpful.)
  • Name of the person you are concerned about or other available identifying information.
  • If available, please provide the residence hall, phone number or cell phone for this person.
  • Please tell us if you want this to be confidential, or if you want the person to know you contacted the team, out of your concern for them.

Note: the I Care Team members will keep this information as confidential as possible; however, please be aware that our responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of people and incidents must be balanced with the need to protect the individual and the group.
