AMHERST, Mass. - The University of Massachusetts Amherst Student Government Association-sponsored “Walk for Light” will be held Tues. Nov. 12 at 7 p.m.
Interested participants will gather on the steps of the Student Union and divide into groups to walk predetermined routes on campus, taking note of any safety concerns along the way. Students, staff, and faculty are invited to participate.
The “Walk for Light” is scheduled once each semester, and is organized in collaboration with the University Police Department and the Chancellor’s Committee on Campus Safety, a broad-based campus committee established to address campus safety issues.
The “Walk for Light” was started several years ago, and has directly resulted in the installation of additional police call boxes, improved lighting on campus, and pruning of vegetation for safety purposes.
