Victim-Survivor Support

In this section, you can learn about steps you can take and resources available if you have experienced sexual violence, reporting options, and ways to support a friend who is a victim or survivor. Sexual violence is an umbrella term used to include sexual assault, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence, and stalking.

Survivor is a term used to describe those who have experienced sexual violence. Some individuals feel as though they are a victim and are still working through the trauma and shock of what happened to them. Others feel as though they have overcome or are working towards overcoming the trauma and shock of the violence, and therefore identify as survivors. Whether you identify as a victim, survivor or neither, know that there are resources and people to support you here at Georgia Tech.

VOICE provides resources and support for all victims and survivors of any form of sexual violence regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.

Reporting Options

At Georgia Tech, we encourage all students to report sexual violence, but it is important to know that survivors are not required to report and can receive supportive services and information about their rights and accommodations without reporting. Assistance is available to help students determine the best reporting option. If you have additional questions about reporting options, or would like more specific information prior to filing a report, please contact one of the VOICE Advocates in Health Initiatives by calling (404) 385-4464 or (404) 385-4451.

If a student wishes to report sexual violence, there are several options. Students can file a confidential report, by contacting any of the following offices:

  • Health Initiatives
  • Women’s Resource Center
  • Counseling Center
  • Women's Health or any other clinician in Stamps Health Services

To file a report for a violation of the Student Sexual Misconduct Policy, contact the Title IX Coordinator

To file a criminal report, contact the Georgia Tech Police Department.

For more information about definitions of sexual violence and reporting procedures, you can also refer to the Georgia Tech Student Sexual Misconduct Policy and review Victim-Survivor Rights and Options Review Victim- Survivor Rights and Options.
