Navigating SAPAC

On campus, there are so many resources (and acronyms to go with them) that it would be in our best interest to get familiar with. One such resource is SAPAC,   or the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center. SAPAC offers support   for survivors of sexual assault, stalking, sexual harassment, and domestic   violence; the organization offers a 24-hour crisis line (734-936-3333) that may   be used by any individuals who are in need of support or counseling.

Expect Respect

The role of the Expect Respect program is to work with students and campus departments to create programs that foster an inclusive and socially aware and just campus environment. Expect respect is focused on creating a campus environment where everyone feels that they belong. With help from the Expect Respect Student steering committee, and different Student Life departments, we will work collaboratively to support and develop campus events and programs that promote respect and diversity on campus for all students, faculty and staff.

Secure Your Laptop, Smartphone, and Bicycle

Laptops, cell phones, bicycles, and other personal electronics are easy targets for theft. In addition to the cost of replacement, they may have personal information and intellectual property that can be difficult or impossible to recover and protect. The good news is that the University of Michigan Police Department offers free Laptop, Personal Electronics and Bicycle Registration Programs to members of the campus community! By registering your devices, it can help deter theft and assist in the recovery of stolen property.

Plan Ahead! Spend Summer Abroad

Although winter semester is just getting under way, it’s time to start making plans for summer break, in order to take full advantage of both the warm weather and four months free of books and classwork. I have found no better way to spend this time than to study abroad. Not only can you gain language skills, you can also get work or internship opportunities, meet great people, and   experience another culture separate from your own.
