FALL 2020 COVID-19 UPDATE
VOICE would like to welcome all students as we return to in-person learning for Fall 2020. VOICE Advocates remain available 24/7 to provide confidential services to those impacted by sexual harassment, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and/or stalking.
As a precautionary measure related to COVID-19, VOICE Advocates are primarily offering virtual and phone appointments. We recognize that virtual meetings may not be accessible, private, or safe for some survivors. Advocates are available as needed for in-person meetings as well as accompaniment for medical and legal services. Our offices are located in Health Initiatives Suite 232 in the Stamps Health Services Building, and an Advocate will be on campus during business hours Monday - Friday 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.
For Non-Urgent Support:
Request a meeting with a VOICE Advocate by calling 404-385-4451 or 404-384-4464. Messages will be returned promptly during regular business hours.

For Urgent Support:
If you are experiencing emotional distress and/or in need of medical or legal information immediately, VOICE is here for you. Advocates can explore resources and options, some of which are time sensitive. Call GTPD at 404-894-2500 and ask to speak to the On-Call Advocate. You do not need to make a report or provide any information other than your phone number.
Quarantine and physical distancing may bring up feelings of isolation, increased threats to physical and emotional safety, and mental health concerns. Returning to campus may offer the first opportunity to seek support safely and privately after months of quarantine. For all those who have survived and are surviving sexual violence, you are not alone.
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-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 Georgia Tech students who are victim-survivors of any form of sexual violence regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.
