The Division of Public Safety & Security (DPSS) Student Advisory Board facilitates and enhances communication between U-M students and DPSS. Student advisory board members play an important role in identifying campus safety concerns and providing feedback on ways to remedy those concerns.

How can I become a board member?

We are now accepting applications. The DPSS Student Advisory Board is looking to continue to diversify and bring as many perspectives to the conversation as possible. We accept applications on a rolling basis. Members must be in good standing with the university and pass a standard background check as sensitive information is shared with the advisory board. Fill out this online application if you are interested in joining!

“My hope is that the dialogue centered environment within the DPSS Student Advisory Board allows students to voice their concerns to administration, ensuring the campus community's safety needs are identified and met.”

“The Student Advisory Board is an important bridge and resource between DPSS and not only the students here on campus, but for the community as a whole. Feedback is essential for the overall safety and security on this campus and one of our main goals is to make as many voices can show up in the feedback process as possible - in whatever way we can do that.“
