SRU's Student Life sponsors
all-campus safety panel Oct. 5
SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - There are good ways to be safe and many of them will be discussed when Slippery Rock University's Office of Student Life presents a free all-campus forum at 12:30 p.m., Oct. 5.
The event will be in the University Union Multi-Purpose Room.
Brad Kovaleski, director of SRU's Center for Student Involvement and Leadership, will serve as moderator.
"In light of recent events off campus, we thought that holding a discussion session to remind the campus community, including students, faculty and staff of ways to be safer on campus and in the community would be beneficial to all," Windy Stafford, interim chief of University Police, said.
At the forum, campus and Slippery Rock Borough Police will be available to answer questions and hear community concerns or suggestions.
Leigh Ann Datt, interim director of SRU's Office of Student Conflict Resolution Services; Karla Fonner, program coordinator for the Bridge Project, operated through the SRU Women's Center; Sean Colbert-Lewis, assistant professor of elementary education and early childhood; Patrick Beswick, associate director of student live; and a representative from SRU's Health Services along with SRU students will serve on the discussion panel.
"We will certainly talk about what it is to be a 'good friend and a safe friend," as part of the program," Stafford said. "It will be an opportunity to voice specific concerns, be reminded that safety is important and discuss how to make good decisions."
