Parents and Families


The Advancing Public Safety at the University of Michigan Task Force — one of several anti-racism initiatives the university announced last fall — will host its first community forum on Tuesday, February 9 from 7-8:30 p.m. 

The event, which will take place virtually, will allow Ann Arbor campus faculty, staff, students, parents and Ann Arbor community members to share their experiences with campus policing and public safety, or join and listen.

The 20-member task force, co-chaired by U-M professors Earl Lewis of LSA and the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, and Daphne C. Watkins of the School of Social Work and Institute for Social Research, is charged with examining what’s working and what needs to be improved with the university’s Division of Public Safety and Security.

Community members can also share their input through a survey, which will be available until Feb. 15. More information about the Community Forum is available in this University Record article.
