Ad Hoc Committee on Safety in a Diverse Environment

The Ad Hoc Committee on Safety in a Diverse Environment was convened at the request of President Amy Gutmann and is chaired by Interim Provost Peter Conn. The committee will look closely at the relationship between the Department of Public Safety (DPS) and people of color, most specifically African American males. The committee will review relevant police policies, procedures and reports, specifically focusing on the report submitted last spring by the Ad Hoc Committee on Racial Profiling. The committee will present concrete suggestions on how to improve relationships between DPS and community members of color in order to foster an environment in which all members of the Penn community can flourish, feel safe and achieve mutual respect. The committee held its first meeting on December 20, 2004 and reviewed progress made on recommendations submitted by the Ad Hoc Committee on Racial Profiling last spring. It will meet again within the next week.
