Educational programming on student safety is shared by multiple student development units. UNH Manchester’s urban mission compels us to forge collaborations with community partners to deliver meaningful educational programming to assist students to move about the campus and the city of Manchester with confidence. Regular educational programs on topics such as urban campus safety, personal safety, wellbeing, relationship violence, and sexual assault awareness and prevention are offered each semester in addition to community-sponsored interactive projects and events.

  • Collaborations with the YWCA of New Hampshire

    Awareness Events
    The YWCA hosts awareness tables at the start of each academic semester to raise awareness about relationship violence and sexual assault and service available at the YWCA.

    Brown Bag Presentations
    Professionals from the YWCA have hosted brown bag noontime presentations and discussions in the college auditorium on stalking and cyber stalking, relationship violence, sexual assault awareness and prevention, and human trafficking.

    The Clothesline Project
    UNH Manchester participates in the Clothesline Project to raise awareness about violence against women. Join us to decorate a t-shirt and hang it on the clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women.

    Take a Stand Against Racism
    UNH Manchester joins with the YWCA of New Hampshire to eliminate racism by raising awareness. Again this year, UNH Manchester will partner with the YWCA to Take Stand Against Racism and take a stand for peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. We will take a stand again in April 2012.
