Students, Recent Alums Invited to Listening Session on Campus Safety

By Maryland Today Staff

On behalf of the President's Task Force on Community Policing and in partnership with campus student organizations, UMD students and recent alums are invited to a virtual listening session about campus safety from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday.

The goal of the task force is to provide recommendations to enhance public safety and community policing to help the campus move toward more collaborative and trusting partnerships between public safety officials and the university community.

This event seeks to create a space for participants to share their experiences with safety on campus, considering questions such as:

  • What makes you feel safe or unsafe on campus?
  • What suggestions do you have to improve safety on campus?
  • How would you describe your direct or indirect interactions with the police?
  • When and how do you seek police support or assistance?

Advance registration is required. The listening session will be facilitated by Zahrah Siddiq, a kinesiology major and president of NAACP-UMCP, and Rachelle Wakefield, a public health science major and president of the Black Student Union.
