Student Affairs Live - Student Affairs Partnership with Campus Police

October 6, 2016

Building and maintaining strong working relationships between campus police departments and student affairs divisions is critical today, perhaps more than ever before. Partnerships focused on ensuring campus safety and preparing effectively for crises are among the top priorities for proactive collaboration between these two campus units. Yet, the impact of systemic racism in our larger society, combined with a student’s experience and knowledge of law enforcement behaviors from their hometowns, all influence students’ perception of campus police and their level of comfort with presence of law enforcement in their academic environment.

On this episode of Student Affairs Live, host Heather Shea Gasser connects with four individuals who have effectively built partnerships on their campuses to learn about strategies. Joining Heather to discuss this topic are Kendal Washington White, Brian Seastone, Rachel Aho, and Florene McGlothian-Taylor (please read their detailed bios below).
