Sexual Violence

Alexandria Technical & Community College does not tolerate sexual misconduct or sexual violence of any kind in any context. We are committed to empowering students who experience sexual assault or other forms of gender-based violence (GBV) to pursue disciplinary, criminal, and civil action if they choose to do so.


Please call 911, if it's an emergency.

If you are a member of the Alexandria Technical & Community College community and have experienced sexual harassment, sexual assault, rape, dating/intimate partner or domestic violence, harassment based on gender nonconformity, stalking, cyber-stalking, or retaliation, you have options for support.
