Purdue Student Government creates safety committee in response to fatal attack

Jan 30, 2014

Purdue Student Government senators are moving forward with a committee focused on campus safety.

Its creation is in response to the deadly shooting and stabbing of a student last week.

PSG Vice President Meg Highley says while the new panel is in reaction to the incident, it is also necessary to try to prevent similar situations.

This committee is tasked with collecting student opinions through open forums.

Highley says the goal is to make everybody feel safe on campus and she is encouraging students to take part in the process.

Purdue student Cody Cousins is charged with fatally shooting and stabbing Andrew Boldt in a classroom on campus January 21st.
