Regardless of one's stance on arming URI campus police, other steps are necessary to reduce the risk of violence and help community members feel secure. The goal of this event is to receive input on solutions for a comprehensive approach to non-violence and safety at URI.
The Faculty Senate Executive Committee and the offices of the President and Provost have organized an open forum to address three crucial components of campus security:
• Training in nonviolent resolution
• Counseling and interventions to address mental health issues, and
• Emergency preparation and protocols.
Moderated by URI Economics Professor Richard McIntyre, speakers include:
* Gail Faris, Assistant Director of the Women's Center and Certified Trainer at the URI Center for Peace and Nonviolence (retired)
* Abraham Henderson, Director of AmeriCorp Program for the Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence
