Open Forums on Campus Safety Set for Next Week

The 90-minute forums will be held at different times on Oct. 30, 31 and Nov. 1 to accommodate different schedules. The listening sessions are organized by Margolis Healy, an independent security consulting firm PSU has hired to review campus safety.

The consultant wants input from across campus as they begin their review of security policies and procedures such as Campus Public Safety Office staffing and resources, officer training, our relationship with local law enforcement and what may have changed over time since PSU’s Board of Trustees approved a sworn, armed police force in December 2014.

All the forums will take place at PSU's Academic and Student Recreation Center (ASRC), Room 515. There also will be an online survey available next week for those who cannot attend the forums but would like to provide feedback.  

Here is the schedule of the listening sessions:

Tuesday, Oct. 30
12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
