About the Campus Safety Task Force

President Jennifer Collins formed the Campus Safety Task Force in October 2022 to study safety and security on campus and in the community. The 23-member task force includes Rhodes students, faculty, and staff. Community partners and others will be brought into the discussions at various stages.

The task force has been charged to evaluate campus safety efforts to insure they are transparent and free of bias, study what needs to be done in the areas of infrastructure, resources, and partnerships, and submit actionable recommendations for lasting change.

Updates

As the work of the Campus Safety Task Force progresses, updates will be posted to this site.
