Support Services & Resources

If you have experienced a sexual assault or violence in a dating or intimate relationship, the most important thing you can do is get to a safe place. If you believe you or anyone else is in immediate danger, call 911 as soon as possible.

 

You are not alone. You have options.

We are here to support you and provide you with any desired resources. Deciding whether or not to report an incident isn’t easy. Feel free to take your time with the decision. While you consider your options, please know that there are several options to talk to someone confidentially.

On-campus Resources

  • Director of CARE Initiative:
    260-982-5027 or sjhenderson@manchester.edu

  • MU Counseling Services:
    260-982-5888 or go to this page for campus-specific emails
    Note: Keep in mind when emailing the general office emails or scheduling an appointment that counselors are confidential resources, but administrative assistants are not.

___________________________________________________________________________

 If you do decide to report the event, we recommend considering the following options:

  • Speak with a Mandated Reporter. These are MU employees (faculty, staff, vendor, and contractors) that are NOT listed as a confidential on-campus resource above).
  • Contact CARE if you want to walk through what the process would look like before initiating contact with Title IX. Please note, regardless of who you speak with on-campus, it is your choice to involve the police; this includes if you report the event to campus authorities. 


    **Manchester University strives to uphold privacy and confidentiality as much as possible and only shares information received with those who have a need to know in order to respond.  Individuals who desire anonymity in discussing and seeking assistance about sexual misconduct should contact and/or be referred to a confidential employee.**
