Envisioning a new model for campus safety and security

Northwestern’s Community Safety Advisory Board is considering the results of an external review of the Department of Safety and Security, specifically regarding security operations and the overall approach to community engagement.

Co-chaired by the University’s chief diversity officer, Robin Means Coleman, and Dr. Clyde Yancy of the Feinberg School of Medicine, the advisory board was charged last winter with reimagining the campus safety model at a time when impassioned discussion continues nationwide about the role of security personnel in society.

Yancy talked with Northwestern Now about safety, security and a key to creating systemic change.

The external reviewers’ report is available online.
