Participants Needed for Department of Public Safety Student Focus Groups
The Department of Public Safety (DPS), in collaboration with the Student Association, will host a series of student focus groups regarding DPS.

The focus groups will be facilitated by InterFaith Works Central New York, a local nonprofit, via Zoom.
