Many college students wonder about their personal safety. This term the Dean of Students Office will continue to offer free, 90 minute Personal Safety Education workshops for U of M students. We’re planning workshops open to all students, as well as for the Ross Business School, Central Student Government, the Inter-Cooperative Council, students in residence halls and more.
Come to learn and practice verbal and social skills for assertive communication as well as physical skills for setting boundaries with acquaintances, friends, family and strangers. We’ll identify strategies for responding to the most common reported and unreported crimes on college campuses. You’ll also learn more about campus safety resources and where to go for more information or help.
This workshop is free, and open to people of all genders, identities and physical abilities. We will not be learning martial arts, and you do not have to be physically fit to empower yourself by learning personal safety strategies and tools. Survivors of violence are welcome; you're invited to participate in whatever way works for you.
Sign up here for one of the workshops co-sponsored by the U-Move program at the Central Campus Recreation Building in Room 3060 (Activity # 310239). CCRB 2013 dates (Tuesdays, 3:30-5:00 pm) include January 29, February 19, March 12, April 2, and April 16.
Or contact email@example.com to schedule a workshop for your residence hall, off-campus house, student organization, class, or group of friends. Any group of 10 or more students may host a workshop at a time and location convenient to you. Sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs, Dean of Students Office.
