Break the Silence PosterViolence or intimidation can affect the safety of everyone on our campus and the surrounding community.

As University of Michigan community members, we all share the responsibility of maintaining a safe and secure environment—through our own nonviolent behavior and by reporting any acts of violence, threats or aggression.

Workplace or classroom violence and intimidation can be any verbal or physical actions that create fear or threaten the safety of U-M students, faculty, staff or guests. Such behavior may include:

  • Physical assault
  • Behavior that a reasonable person believes has the potential for violence
  • Any act that threatens harm to another person or damage to property
  • Domestic violence
  • Stalking

Reporting an incident

If you have experienced or witnessed such behavior in your U-M workplace or classroom, please report it immediately to the Division of Public Safety and Security (DPSS) at (734) 763-1131.

DPSS can help with reporting and safety planning, and connect you with counseling services and other community resources.

Did You Know?Nearly 2 million American workers report having been victims of workplace violence each year. Unfortunately, many more cases go unreported.
