Prevention and threat management
The Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt wants to ensure the best possible working and study environment for its students and employees. A guiding principle in this context is the respectful coexistence and cooperation that is characterized by mutual respect for each other’s individual personalities. The dignity and integrity of its students and all employees is of utmost importance to the KU and it supports these values with a prevention concept and the establishment of a threat management.
The working group ‘Prevention’ that meets in regular intervals consists of officers and representatives from central KU committees who are contact persons for different groups of people and situations. Together, they form the threat management team that is the first point of contact for the following issues:
- All forms of physical violence
- Threat of violence (both oral or in writing)
- Carrying or showing weapons
- Expression of fantasies of violence
- Sexual harassment and assaults
- Expression of intention to commit suicide
Das Bedrohungsmanagement-Team berät und begleitet betroffene Personen, um die Integrität und psychische Gesundheit der Betroffenen sicherzustellen. Es prüft die Situation und die Gefährdungslage und entscheidet dann über die weitere Vorgehensweise. Alle Fälle werden diskret, fair und unter Schutz der Privatsphäre aller Beteiligten behandelt.
The threat management team advises and supports those affected in order to protect their integrity and mental health. It assesses the situation and danger carefully and decides on further action in a second step. All matters and cases are dealt with subject to strict confidentiality in a fair way and by taking into account privacy protection of all parties involved.
The team is led by the KU prevention officer Constance Dittrich and her deputy Dr. Ruth Katzenberger-Schmelcher. E-mail: praevention(at)ku.de
