“Changing the Culture of Policing in the 21st Century”

According to a recent study, blacks are approximately 3 times more likely than whites to be shot and killed by police and nearly 5 times more likely to be killed by police unarmed. Why is this, and how does this affect the mental health of black citizens? Speaking from the perspective of his 30 year career in law enforcement, including his current assignment to the Employee Assistance Program Unit where he provides counsel and support for officers and families involved in critical situations, M. David Goodson will lead us in exploring the "why" to these critical questions.


Following this particular presentation, the Provost’s Office will host an informal luncheon in Baird Library (Walton Hall, 2nd floor) from 11:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. to extend the conversation over a meal. Sodexo offers a discounted meal rate of $6/person, payable at the door. Luncheon attendees should go through the Dining Commons line and bring their lunches back to Baird Library.
