This project, one of two being pursued through the Quad’s new Global Ideas Accelerator format, seeks to identify appropriate definitions for “Public Trust” and “Public Safety” in today’s Colorado Springs.
A team of interdisciplinary students working under the guidance of a multi-specialty faculty group compiled academic literature, case studies, community interviews and a limited survey to understand the inclusive range of current and historical perspectives. They then studied the intersection of these perspectives to generate important insight.
A complete white paper of these findings will be published in early September. A preliminary summary and recorded presentation is available now for community use.
