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.
