Use your syllabus to inform students in writing of the expectations for campus/classroom conduct and devote time to reviewing this information with your students. You can also inform your students about your obligation to report as a "Responsible Employee" through a syllabus statement. All faculty and staff, who are not confidential, are required to report all students’ disclosures of sexual violence, relationship violence, and/or stalking to the Title IX Coordinator to ensure consistent student services and Title IX policy compliance. Do you need help creating a syllabus statement or do you have a great syllabus statement that you'd like to share with your colleagues as an example? Contact VOICE at email@example.com.
Have you experienced sexual violence or have questions related to victim-survivor support, referrals, accommodations, and reporting options and need to speak to a VOICE Advocate?
For confidential support contact us at 404.894.9000 24 hours per day.
Appointments are available for individuals affiliated with Georgia Tech.
Trainings and Opportunities

Confidential Reporting Form
Please contact a VOICE Advocate for questions or concerns related to Georgia Tech reporting requirements or to get support for a student.
Gold Folder Initiative
In 2020, most Faculty and Staff received a new copy of the Sexual Violence Response Guide, or "Gold Folder," which is designed to assist you in responding to a student's disclosure of sexual assault, abuse in a relationship, or stalking. Sexual and relationship violence are issues that many students struggle with, although they often go unreported. In the event that a student discloses their experience(s) with you, please know that you are in a special position to act as a resource. The Gold Folder has been designed so that you can better act as a resource in a student's time of need.
If you would like to order more Gold Folders, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Faculty and Staff Survivors of Sexual Violence
Although VOICE Advocates can only provide support for students who have experienced sexual violence or those who are helping a survivor, you can contact a VOICE Advocate for resources and referrals or review Community Resources.
You can also contact the Employee Assistance Program at 1.844.243.4440 for toll-free access to licensed clinical professionals, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You can also request up to 4 sessions per counseling issue, via video or phone.
