Building student involvement, fostering civic engagement and enhancing community service to advance public health. 

Dear members of the Tufts University community,

The Tufts University Working Group on Campus Safety and Policing invites you to participate in an upcoming small-group discussion on the arming of Tufts University police officers.

One of the key recommendations of the Working Group, released in February of this year, was for the university to launch a standalone effort to assess and research arming of Tufts police officers. As part of implementing that recommendation, we would like to invite you to participate in an upcoming small-group discussion on the issue. Through these discussion groups, which will be facilitated by graduate students at the Fletcher School, we hope to engage participants in an open exchange of perspectives on this critical topic. Our plan is to have groups inclusive of students, faculty, and staff from all campuses. Each session will have breakout groups that do not exceed 10 participants and meeting times will be no longer than 90 minutes.

We would be most grateful for your participation and extend our gratitude in advance for assisting us in this work.

Faculty/Staff Discussion Sessions:

Friday, April 9: 12 pm

Thursday, April 15: 12 pm

Tuesday, April 20: 6 pm

Student Discussion Sessions: Student participants will receive a $50 Amazon E-card.

Please indicate a first and second choice of date/time. The deadline for registering is Friday, April 2. You will receive a confirmation on Monday, April 5.

Your participation will help the committee that is ultimately formed to more fully assess and research the arming of police officers by understanding the range of perspectives of the Tufts community on this important matter.

Sincerely,

Mike Howard, Executive Vice President

Co-chair of the Working Group on Campus Safety and Policing
