The Dean of Students Office is just one of many units at the University of Michigan invested in student safety and violence prevention. And just one of the prevention programs they’re offering students this year is a three day self-defense class taught by IMPACT Chicago and co-sponsored by the U of M Alumnae Council.
IMPACT Self-Defense of Chicago is a non-profit organization, committed to ending violence and building a non-violent world in which all people can live safely and with dignity. By teaching self-defense, they provide tools to help prevent, minimize, and stop violence.
At Michigan, there will be a February, 2014 program for students who identify as women and trans women and a September, 2014 program for students of all gender identities. Applicants choose for themselves which program will best meet their needs.
