Seeking Nominations for Student of Color Advisory Committee
The University is seeking student nominations for the Student of Color Advisory Committee that will collaborate with the Department of Public Safety (DPS). This committee, which originated in fall 2018 with the idea of bringing together students, DPS members and other campus community members to focus on integrating public safety with quality of life matters, will provide feedback on such important matters as safety, late-night transportation and DPS intervention, among other topics.
Students selected as part of the committee will work with DPS and other staff members to develop solutions to further ensure the well-being of students on and off campus.
The committee will be co-chaired by DPS Chief Bobby Maldonado. A student co-chair will be designated in the coming month. Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer Keith A. Alford; Rob Hradsky, vice president for the student experience; and Marianne Thomson, associate vice president and dean of students, will serve as ad hoc committee members.
“We are grateful to the students who participated last year and look forward to those who will be joining us again this year. We also look forward to welcoming the new members who offer new perspectives and ideas,” says Chief Maldonado.
Students, faculty and staff can nominate a student or students can also nominate themselves. Nominations should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with a statement detailing the student’s interest in the committee and why the student would be a valuable member of the group. The deadline for nominations is Tuesday, Sept. 29; the committee’s membership will be announced the following week.
