President’s Task Force on Campus, Community and Personal Safety Charge
The Task Force shall examine:
- Best and innovative practices to create a safe and health-focused environment on campus;
- What defunding policing would mean to fulfill our goal of a safe and health-focused campus environment;
- If defunding policing is not the answer, what changes are necessary to meet our goals;
- If defunding is the answer, what would be an alternative structure to meet our goals;
- If defunding is the answer, how would funds be allocated to create the alternative structure;
- How do these structures address accountability?
- Recommendations for reform.
The Task Force will also consider the following cross-cutting principles and factors:
- What values are paramount and how do decisions reflect those values?
- Who is served by policing or by alternative structures?
- Is a new structure anti-racist, equitable, and just for all members of the CSU community?
And the Task Force will engage in their work incorporating the following processes:
- Providing opportunities for input from diverse groups and individual students, faculty, employees and community members, including alumni;
- Consulting outside experts on campus health safety and policing;
- Seeking information on alternative structures.
