Alfred Community Coalition
The Alfred Community Coalition is comprised of members from Alfred University, Alfred State College and the Village and Town of Alfred who are dedicated to addressing issues that arise regarding students living in the Alfred community. The Coalition works proactively to reduce high risk behaviors of students in the community. The Coalition also is committed to promote responsible decision-making of college students and to educate students on their rights and responsibilities as good neighbors and citizens in the Village and Town of Alfred.
Goals for the current year
- Re-evaluate perceptions of safety off-campus, following the same format as our 2011 survey. Consider including village residents in the survey as well as students from both campuses.
- Better publicize the Village of Alfred's new incident reporting link
- Continue to work with the Hot Dog Day committee or representatives on improving the climate downtown during HDD and the surrounding days.
