An office on campus is staffed entirely by graduates and current students of the U, and almost all of them are from the same college.
Chris Linder’s appointment is part of efforts to increase safety and reduce domestic violence.
“I want students, faculty and staff to know Campus Police are here as a resource. If someone doesn’t feel comfortable making a police report, we still want them to contact us so we can direct them to the help they need. There are so many resources on campus—OEO/Title IX, victim-survivor advocates, counseling. We want people to reach out to us so we can offer resources and referrals to keep them safe.”
A working group at the U is looking at raising awareness about healthy relationships and warning signs of trouble.
