Rebekah Ashley wins non-union staff seat on DPS Oversight Committee

Rebekah Ashley, director of faculty affairs in the College of Engineering, has won the election to fill the seat of the non-union staff representative to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) Oversight Committee. Ashley began a two-year term on Sunday.

The six-member committee consists of two student members, two faculty members (one Senate faculty and one non-Senate faculty), and two staff members (one union and one non-union), who are nominated and elected by their peers for two-year terms.

The DPS Oversight Committee considers grievances against any police officer or the department. Its findings and recommendations are reported to the executive vice president and chief financial officer. Additional information about the committee and its procedures may be found at the DPS Oversight Committee website.
