The Unit for Victims of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence

Have you been a victim or witness of sexual or gender-based violence?

Sorbonne University has entrusted the Institute of Reproductive Health, now called Women Safe with the reception, counselling and accompaniment of victims and witnesses of sexual and gender-based violence within their University community, whether the victims are University staff or students.

This institute brings together specialists (male and female doctors, nurses, psychologists, lawyers and in-house council) with the skills deal with various situations of sexual and gender-based violence. 

You will find someone who will listen and support you within this institute, which will take care of you according to the following steps:

  • First contact by phone or email after which a quick appointment will be proposed,
  • A reception interview at the Institute's premises (20 rue Armagis in St-Germain en Laye) which enables the referral to a consultation with a doctor, a psychologist, a lawyer and social services,
  • Guidance for a follow-up and continuous support until the situation is resolved,
  • Specific support and monitoring to assist in steps (medical, psychological, social, legal) outside the Institute.

The partnership set up with the Institute for Reproductive Health/Women Safe enables the victim to interact with specialists, who advise and support the victim. Total confidentiality and respect for their wishes are guaranteed to the people concerned. Interviews are strictly confidential and support is entirely free of charge for the victims, the costs being covered by Sorbonne University.

Welcome to Sorbonne University's Faculty of Science & Engineering

A unique combination of courses and expertise

Our international study programmes are organised according to the major disciplinary areas of the faculty. They represent the graduate study programmes that are not strictly conducted in French or that could be suitable (in part) for non French-speaking students. They also reflect part of the diversity of the disciplines involved and the bi- and inter-disciplinary aspects of many of the courses we offer.


Research & Innovation

We rely on disciplinary skills and on interdisciplinary approaches to renew concepts, methods and research subjects and to focus on some of the crucial issues faced by our societies: transformations affecting the very construction of knowledge (data, AI), the treatment of complex objects (the environment, marine and ocean sciences, cultural heritage) or our contributions to addressing societal challenges (climate change, healthcare).
