The Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Women, Staff Advocacy Subcommittee invites all UIC staff, faculty, and students to come together to gain physical skills and to develop an empowering mindset to provide participants with self-defense skills to handle potential threats.

We will also host a discussion panel with Andie Celerio, M.Ed., Assistant Director, Campus Advocacy Network (CAN), self-defense instruction facilitator, John Martin, and Police Officer Cesar Canizales, C.O.P.S officer. The program will last approximately two hours. The program will include welcome and introductions, interpersonal violence discussion, information about resources on campus, self-defense and safety engagement, panel discussion and Q&A. We suggest that participants wear comfortable clothing.
