The Walk for Light is an opportunity for students and staff to work together to identify safety-related issues on campus and document those concerns for repair or other appropriate follow-up.  These observations may include identifying areas of concern due to poor or broken lighting, overgrown trees or bushes that reduce lighting, broken railings or uneven steps, newly cut paths due to ongoing construction, or other safety-related issues.  A final report is then compiled and sent to the appropriate UMass departments for repair. 

Walk for Light is conducted by the UMPD in conjunction with the Physical Plant, Residential Life, Student Affairs and Campus Life and other campus groups.

Volunteers will break into groups and head out to different areas of campus. 

All members of the campus community are welcome to take part. Participants should dress for the weather.

The event finishes with a debriefing and pizza at Dickinson Hall.
