Students and faculty will work together to consider an alternative to CWRU’s campus police. The goal is to increase the safety and well-being of our campus community, in particular, Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC). One idea for a police alternative is to create student volunteer wellness teams. Wellness teams would be comprised of volunteer student members who would receive extensive training in one or more of the following specializations: mental health, emergency medical service, or diversity. The teams would be called for escorts, mental health problems, and injuries and would “patrol” campus as a group looking for people in need of help. Wellness teams might be similar to Residents Assistants (but for the rest of campus), combined with EMS, and with increased emphasis on diversity. Black student leaders, trained resident assistants, and student EMTs are especially encouraged to be involved.
