Current and Upcoming Community Engagement Opportunities

Portland State University: ReImagining Campus Safety (Engagement opportunities coming beginning of October)

Last fall, PSU President Percy announced the creation of a new Reimagining Campus Safety Committee (RCSC) - made up of students, staff, and faculty - to understand the array of safety needs of the campus community and to reimagine an approach to meeting those needs that reflects our commitment to racial justice and human dignity. The RCSC has been working to develop recommendations for not only new functional approaches to campus safety and security, but cultural shifts that will call forth a new vision of a welcoming campus that promotes well-being and creates the conditions for genuine belonging for all members of the PSU community. 

Now the RCSC would like to know what is important to members of the PSU community about safety and belonging on campus.  This fall, Oregon's Kitchen Table be providing an online survey, materials, and resources for groups to hold their own discussions, and facilitation assistance for community groups to hear more from everyone at PSU. The online survey will be available the first week of October.
