March 16 Emergency Alert and Important Campus Resources

Recent events around the world and here on campus have been upsetting to many students, faculty, and staff. Although reports of an active shooter on the University of Michigan campus on Saturday proved to be unfounded (the noises were actually the sounds of balloons popping), this was a very frightening day for many. As such, the International Center would like to remind you about some resources that are available to the campus community. Students can contact CAPS, the university’s counseling and psychological services at 734-764-8312 for support. Faculty and staff can receive support through the Faculty and Staff Counseling and Consultation Office (734-936-8660) or the Michigan Medicine Office of Counseling and Workplace Resilience (734-763-5409). International students and scholars can also talk with one of our advisors. If you would like more information about what happened on Saturday and want to become more aware of U-M safety resources, you can read this statement from U-M’s Division of Public Safety and Security (DPSS)
