SafeRide Review Task Force: Seeking student members
Submitted by Center for Student Involvement
The Center for Student Involvement seeks interested student members for the newly established SafeRide Review Task Force. Faculty and staff are encouraged to share this opportunity with students who may have an interest in participating.
Having recently undergone its regular three-year review as part of the Center for Student Involvement's Student Privilege Fee budget review process, there is great interest in further exploring the future of the SafeRide program at K-State. The center's executive director — the administrator charged with overseeing the SafeRide program — has decided to establish a SafeRide Review Task Force charged to review the current program, examine and explore national and local trends of similar programs, and identify where the program will go in the future.
The SafeRide Review Task Force will be primarily made up of student representatives from across the campus community. In addition, members of local agencies may be added to ensure a well-rounded, intentional review of the program. Students interested in serving on the SafeRide Review Task Force should complete the interest form. Interest forms will be accepted until 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6.
SafeRide was established in 2010 as a Student Privilege Fee funded program. Its mission is to save lives and prevent injuries and damage to property by offering students and their guests a safe alternative to drunken driving and other threatening situations. It currently is operated by Flint Hills ATA Bus and runs from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday while classes are in session in Manhattan.
