Proud Mercy alumn brings sexual assault awareness to the forefront

Nationally renowned experts on sexual assault and domestic violence, Dr. Alan Heisterkamp and Tess Codywill lead the Mentors in Violence Prevention Train the Trainer Workshop with select Mercy College champions and facilitators on campus including college leadership, faculty and staff to assist those in our community with concerns.

"Nearly 1 in 2 women and 1 in 5 men
experienced sexual violence victimization
other than rape at some point in their lives."1

Because "... it is therefore likely that most health care providers will come into contact with victims of sexual violence,"2 Mercy College is preparing our students and graduates to respond with care.

Spearheading this critical movement is Mercy College alumn and current Student Health Nurse Michelle Fetters, RN ASN'12, BSN'13.  Fetters and academic adviser Caitlyn Zimmermann, both trained workshop facilitators, are passionate about addressing these issues within the Mercy College community.

These conversations challenge beliefs and assumptions surrounding sexual assault and domestic violence. Long term expected outcomes are that Mercy College employees, students and graduates will be able to:

  • Re-frame the crime of sexual assault and domestic violence

  • Stop the "victim blame"

  • Accurately place responsibility with the perpetrator

We believe that no person should bear the effects of a sexual offense or domestic violence alone. When such incidents occur, our paramount concern is for the safety, health, and well-being of those affected. A wide range of services and resources are available to support and assist students.
