We applaud our students for advocating for changes and for their interest in making campus a safer place. Creating a culture of safety means that all members of our community—administrators, students, faculty, staff and visitors—have important roles to play.
Many of the items noted in the Declaration of Protest have been, or are in the process of being, addressed. More information can be found here. Nonetheless, we know the work of making campus safer is a journey, and that this work will never be finished. Dialogues are an important part of this process.
President Ruth Watkins is happy to meet with students to discuss campus safety initiatives and the topics specifically noted in the Declaration of Protest. Students are invited to contact the Office of the President to schedule a meeting.
