Action Council on Student Housing and Wellbeing invites suggestions on transportation and pedestrian safety
Purdue’s Action Council on Student Housing and Wellbeing is inviting suggestions and listening to ideas related to transportation and pedestrian safety. These ideas are being captured through a survey being administered by Purdue Administrative Operations.
As announced earlier this fall, the university is drawing on the collective input from students, faculty and staff to build on the progress made in recent years on campus safety enhancements, like the addition of dedicated pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure as part of the State Street Redevelopment Project, the transformation of a portion of Third Street in a pedestrian-friendly corridor, the expansion of the pedestrian walkway along Northwestern Avenue and the reduction of campus speed limits. The feedback gathered in the survey will provide critical insights into areas of opportunity for enhancing the safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors as they travel on the West Lafayette campus.
With tens of thousands of trips taking place on campus every day using a variety of modes of transportation, the survey aims to collect user experiences related to alternate forms of transportation including human and motor-powered devices such as bicycles, scooters and skateboards.
All students, faculty and staff received an email from Provost Patrick Wolfe and Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer Chris Ruhl with a link to the survey, which is also included below.
Please provide suggestions via the transportation and pedestrian safety survey.
The survey opened today (Nov. 20) and will remain open through 11:59 p.m. Dec. 1.
