The Council will advance access to education, educational equity, and opportunities for student success by working to ensure a safe, secure, peaceful, and inclusive campus environment where all persons can develop without fear or undue risk of physical or emotional harm. The Council’s purpose is to promote effective communication, collaboration, and understanding between students, faculty, staff, community members, and areas of the college charged with keeping each campus a welcoming, safe, and productive learning and working environment for all members. The Council will assist in creating an anti-racist campus climate where individuals and their diverse cultures and identities are welcomed, nurtured, and validated. The Council will review pertinent data and provide feedback for improving the quality and level of service provided to the campus community in the areas of campus policing and public safety, and to support adherence to community policing principles and evidence-based policing practices.
