University Seeking Nominations for Student of Color Advisory Committee
Syracuse University is seeking student nominations for the Student of Color Advisory Committee, the student group tasked with collaborating closely with the Department of Public Safety (DPS).
This committee, which originated in Fall 2018 with the idea of bringing students, DPS members and other campus community members together to focus on integrating public safety with quality-of-life matters, will provide feedback on safety 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 Associate Vice President and Chief Craig Stone. A student co-chair will be designated in the coming month. Additionally, DPS is in the process of identifying other community members who will serve as ad hoc committee members.
“Our goal is to create and maintain an environment where all students are safe, they feel safe, and they feel appreciated and welcome. I look forward to collaborating with this committee and finding ways for our department to continually evolve and improve,” shares Chief Stone.
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 Friday, April 29; the committee’s membership will be announced the following week.
