Georgia Tech is committed to maintaining a learning environment that is safe and fosters the dignity, respect, and worth of students, faculty, and staff. The Institute and the Department of Housing and Residence Life take sexual violence very seriously. The Student Sexual Misconduct Policy addresses student-related concerns of sexual assault and sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, stalking, intimate partner and dating violence. These types of behavior place the learning environment and safety of students at risk and impact the residential community negatively. Students who are found responsible for such behavior in the residential environment will be at risk for the cancellation of their Housing contract. For more information on the Institute’s Student Sexual Misconduct Policy, visit the Office of Student Integrity website.
The Department of Housing and Residence Life encourages survivors to seek support and report sexual and relationship violence. Health Initiatives has two confidential Voice Advocates who can inform students of their options for support, including academic accommodations and/or reporting. VOICE is Georgia Tech’s sexual violence prevention and response initiative based in Health Initiatives. For more information on support services, reporting options, sexual violence prevention events and trainings, or opportunities to get involved click here. For assistance during business hours, call the Voice Advocates at 404-384-4451 or 404-385-4464 or contact GTPD after-hours to be connected to the Advocates. Students can also choose to report sexual misconduct to the Georgia Tech Police Department, the Office of Student Integrity and/or the Institute’s Title IX Coordinator. Additional confidential support is available for students through the Counseling Center, physicians and psychiatrists at Stamps Health Services.
