The author uses Scholarly Personal Narrative and Chickering’s (1969) seven vectors of identity development to outline her own movement from the identity of a victim of two sexual assaults to the identity of a survivor. The application of survivor identity development theory is discussed in hope that higher education professionals will endeavor to recognize, celebrate, and facilitate the development of survivor identities.
