Information for Faculty & Staff

Georgia State University is committed to providing a safe learning environment that supports the dignity of all members of the university community. As responsible employees, faculty and staff members are obligated to report incidents of sexual misconduct and sexual harassment of students if perpetrated by a student(s) to the Dean of Students, in person in Student Center East, Suite 303, by calling 404-413-1515 or by email. If perpetrated by a faculty or staff member, the incident should be reported to the assistant vice president for human resources administration in Opportunity Development and Diversity Education Planning (ODDEP) at 1 Park Place South, Suite 308, or by calling 404-413-3290.

How to Refer to Student Victim Assistance
Student Victim Assistance is available by appointment and on a walk-in basis. When possible, appointments are encouraged in order to assure that students are afforded all of the time that they may need. Faculty and staff may refer a student to Student Victim Assistance in one of three ways:

  • Provide the student the Student Victim Assistance phone number (404-413-1965) and location (75 Piedmont Avenue NE, Suite 239) and encourage the student to schedule an appointment.
  • Contact Student Victim Assistance and walk a student to the office.
  • With the student’s verbal consent, provide the student’s information, so that Student Victim Assistance can provide follow up contact.

Faculty or staff who are unsure whether or not a referral is necessary can contact Student Victim Assistance directly.

Any faculty or staff member may contact Student Victim Assistance for questions, concerns or consultation at 404-413-1965.

If a student discloses an incident of sexual misconduct or sexual harassment, faculty and staff should notify the student of their obligation as soon as they can. At this time, share the following confidential campus resources:
