Nominations Being Accepted 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 for the second consecutive year by DPS Associate Vice President and Chief, Craig Stone and Karess Gillespie, assistant director in the Office of Student Living.
“I’m proud of the dialogue our committee had throughout last year. We strive to have a meaningful conversation that fosters a safe and welcoming campus community. I look forward to continuing that mission with some new faces joining our committee for this academic year,” shares Chief Stone.
Students, faculty and staff can nominate a student or students can also apply themselves. Nominations/applications should be sent to email@example.com 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 Sunday, Oct. 8; the committee’s membership will be announced the following week.
