Building a Safer Campus

The Point Park University Office of Violence Against Women (OVW) assures resources for victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking are being provided to students through campus departments and external resources. The Campus Program Grant from the Department of Justice allows our office to advocate for students on campus by offering events, training, and awareness in crimes against women.  The office does not provide services directly. We provide referrals to on-campus and off-campus resources to survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. We are committed to providing these services to our entire campus community.
