The Community Board on Public Safety will hold an open town hall meeting to gather input from students on Monday, April 12, 6–7:30 p.m. (PST)
Some of the areas of concern the board will be asking the community for input include:
- Your assessment of public safety on the Stanford campus
- Your experience with the Stanford Department of Public Safety/Stanford Police (DPS)
- Areas where you believe DPS is performing well
- Areas where you believe DPS can improve
- Opportunities for DPS to better engage with the Stanford community
Last summer, in response to safety concerns on campus, President Marc Tessier-Lavigne appointed Patrick Dunkley, deputy athletic director, and Claude Steele, professor emeritus of psychology, as co-chairs of the Community Board on Public Safety. They were asked to form a committee charged with producing a set of recommendations that will ensure the university is effectively addressing safety concerns and is maintaining a healthy and safe environment for all community members.
The board is composed of three faculty members, two undergraduate students and two graduate students, three staff members, three community members, and three members of Stanford’s Department of Public Safety (DPS). The Community Board on Public Safety is an independent entity; however, it will work closely with DPS on the development of its recommendations.
All attendees must register to receive the Zoom details. Those who would like a speaking slot must register in advance. Speakers will be limited to three minutes and are encouraged to use the Community Board on Public Safety charge to formulate their comments.
