TN Board of Regents to create campus safety task force
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Board of Regents system has plans to create a task force that will research campus safety and security.
The Commercial Appeal reports that TBR acting chancellor David Gregory told board members Thursday about his idea to create the group.
Gregory says his goal is to be proactive instead of reactive when it comes to campus safety.
He says the task force will have representation from the three different types of postsecondary institutions that the TBR oversees. Members will study the TBR system, as well as other schools, to provide a report by the September board meeting.
TBR is the governing board for the state community and technical colleges as well as the six state universities not in the University of Tennessee system, including the University of Memphis.
