A Note From the Title IX Coordinator:

Over the past month, our community has received alerts about instances of campus sexual assault. Virginia Tech takes reports of sexual violence seriously. Individuals who experience sexual assault have the right to report it. We strive to handle reports in a way that is equitable, recognizes the dignity of all involved, and holds perpetrators of violence accountable. 

If you or someone you know is struggling with this issue, there is support and resources to help: 

  • The Title IX Coordinator can offer supportive measures and reporting options: Call 540-231-1824 or email polidoro@vt.edu 
  • The Dean of Students office can offer support: Call 540-231-3787 or email dean.students@vt.edu

We all play a role in creating a campus environment free from sexual violence.
