Pitt Business EDI Resources
Learn what EDI Resources are available for all students, faculty, and staff at Pitt Business.
Pitt Concern Connection
The Pitt Concern Connection is a central reporting system for concerns in a variety of areas, including academic, access and use, employee relations, financial, harassment and violence, NCAA rules, Title IX and Civil Rights, and other violations.
Anyone, including Pitt faculty, staff and students, as well as alumni and community members, can make a report or ask a question by phone, text message or the online form 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You will speak to Convercen staff, our third-party provider, who will share the information only with those University employees charged with evaluating the report and ensuring the investigation is conducted properly, professionally and confidentially.
Each of us has a responsibility to speak up and speak out on behalf of ourselves and others. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the Pitt Concern Connection and, if needed, use it. There is more information on the website, as well as frequently asked questions and answers. Thank you for the vital role you play in protecting Pitt and its people

Pitt Business has opened so many new perspectives for me in terms of diversity and inclusion. Through our CPLE work in the fall of 2020, I have gained a much better understanding about the ample opportunities they have provided with every student.
By speaking with representatives from Pitt Queer Professionals, the Women’s Law Project, and even current CBA faculty, we formalized our recommendations to emphasize the need for education on legislation that has molded the status quo, partnerships with professional organizations, and repetition through frequent workshops to keep EDI a core attribute of Pitt Business.
