Two New Student Members Named to the Community Review Board
The Community Review Board (CRB) has announced that two students, Hunter Luke ’25 and Adia Santos ’23, have joined its membership and begun in their new roles.
The CRB reviews appeals of civilian complaints regarding Department of Public Safety (DPS) officer conduct. The CRB is also tasked with reviewing and commenting on prospective new DPS policies, procedures and trainings; reviewing key community-facing functions of DPS; and issuing to the University community a public annual report of findings and recommendations.
“I am very grateful to Hunter and Adia for their commitment to the campus community and joining in the CRB. Their voices and insights are crucially important for the CRB to ensure that a diversity of perspectives are part of the work that we are undertaking,” says CRB chair Brianna C. Sclafani, who is a law student in the College of Law and a graduate student in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
Luke, of Peterborough, New Hampshire, is majoring in policy studies in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. A member of the Renée Crown University Honors Program, Luke is an assembly clerk for the Student Association and volunteers with InterFaith Works’ Center for New Americans.
“Having heard directly from students about campus safety has shown me how much work still needs to be done to affirm DPS’ mission statement,” Luke says. “I see the work of the Community Review Board as one small but significant step in doing just that.”
Santos, of the Bronx, New York, is a political science major in the College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) and the Maxwell School and a religion minor in A&S. She is an assembly member with the Student Association and the president of the Undergraduate Religion Scholars Association.
“I grew up very aware of my surroundings and the role I play in the global community, which led me to lead a life full of activism and political engagement,” Santos says. “As a student leader, I wanted to serve on the Community Review Board to voice student concerns and help pave the way toward a stronger University community. I’ve enjoyed my time here at Syracuse University, and I want to help ensure the success and sense of belonging for future students.”
