Campus Safety Listening Tour Comes to UAS
University of Alaska students, staff and faculty,
In my role as a UA Regent, I have heard testimony from students, faculty and staff regarding sexual violence and harassment and the need to improve prevention efforts and service to victims of harassment and assault. I am aware of the significant efforts being made by the statewide administration and the Chancellors at each campus to comply with federal guidelines and improve campus safety. To gain even more insight, Chair Jyotsna "Jo" Heckman has approved a ‘listening tour’ at UAF, UAA and UAS. As Chair of the Regents Title IX Subcommittee, I will be visiting the three universities this month to meet and talk directly with as many people as possible to hear concerns and better understand these complex issues, to explore ways we can improve campus culture, and to make sure we are providing the best possible service, remedies, due process and full accountability for investigations into instances of sexual assault or harassment.
I will be at the University of Alaska Southeast Juneau campus on March 31st to listen to your concerns, suggestions and perspectives.
- Employee Session: 3/31, 4:00-5:00 pm, Glacier View Room
- Student Session: 3/31, 5:00-6:00 pm, Glacier View Room
We have more to do, but we are making great strides in the right direction. With your help we will do more than meet compliance guidelines, we will lead in the effort to change culture and actively prevent violence and harassment from occurring in the first place.
Please join me and add your voice to this effort.
Regent John Davies
