Student of Color Advisory Committee

This committee, which originated in Fall 2018 with the idea of bringing students, DPS members and other campus community members together to focus on integrating public safety with quality-of-life matters, will provide feedback on safety and DPS intervention, among other topics. Students selected as part of the committee will work with DPS and other staff members to develop solutions to further ensure the well-being of students on and off campus.

The committee will be co-chaired by DPS Associate Vice President and Chief Craig Stone and Karess Gillespie, Assistant Director, Office of Student Living, for the second consecutive year.

Students, faculty and staff can nominate a student or students can also apply themselves. Nominations/applications should be sent to with a statement detailing the student’s interest in the committee and why the student would be a valuable member of the group. The deadline for nominations is Sunday, October 8; the committee’s membership will be announced the following week.
