Campus Safety

862 Pennsylvanians between the ages of 15 and 24 died
from drug overdoses in 2016

1,700 college students die each year from alcohol-related injuries

One in five young adults experiences a mental health condition

Students of college age are at higher risk for sexual violence
than other age groups

In 2017 Attorney General Josh Shapiro launched a campus safety initiative bringing students, university leaders, health professionals and law enforcement together to address drug and alcohol abuse, mental health and sexual assault on university campuses. Community-based roundtables were held at Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University. This Spring the series of roundtables will continue across the Commonwealth; taking place at Lincoln University, University of Pittsburgh, and Dickinson College.  These roundtables will once again bring together students, victim advocates, survivors, local law enforcement, college and university staff, and experts from different fields. In collaborative working groups, participants will identify strategies and promote responses that are survivor-centered and trauma-informed.

We’re calling out to everyone who has a stake in these critical issues to bring their knowledge and expertise to the table. The conversation must be community-driven to be effective, and we’re looking for a broad, diverse group of individuals from a wide range of backgrounds to participate in our upcoming roundtables.

Roundtables will take place at Lincoln University on Tuesday, April 3, 2018, University of Pittsburgh on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, and Dickinson College on Wednesday, May 16, 2018.
