GSU is committed to providing a variety of welcoming and accessible options so that all instances of sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking and relationship violence will be reported. We are committed to supporting victims and survivors and encourage all individuals or third party witnesses to report any incident of sexual misconduct.

Members of the University community who believe they have experienced sexual misconduct have the right to choose whether or not to report the incident to the university or law enforcement.  Most university employees, unless specifically exempted, must immediately report allegations or disclosures of sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator. Confidential resources are available both on-campus and off-campus.
