Victim Assistance

The Office of the Dean of Students provides victim assistance to students who have experienced a traumatic event or have been the victim of sexual assault or other crimes. The student-centered support services include direct crisis intervention, making appropriate referrals (Counseling and Testing Center, Student Health Clinic, GSU Police, etc.), providing advocacy and support during all phases of legal/criminal proceedings, supplying information (victim rights, typical responses to trauma and victimization, safety planning), providing consultation and education to students and faculty and staff, and providing on-going follow-up and support as needed.
