The event aims to promote discussion of how to make the university’s campus and its surrounding areas more safe, sustainable and accessible.
Since students have returned to campus, UMPD has been receiving almost one call a day from students struggling with serious mental health issues, Chief David Mitchell said.
Bars may implement precautions such as limiting the number of tables and people allowed in at one time.
The initiative is part of a multi-year partnership with several campus safety organizations.
About 45 students attended the event, along with student leaders and local police.
