Rachel Dawson elected to Police Department Oversight Committee
Rachel Dawson, managing director of precision health, has been elected as the non-bargained-for staff representative to the U-M Police Department Oversight Committee for a two-year term beginning July 7, 2020. The committee receives and makes recommendations regarding grievances against any police officer deputized by the university.
The six-member oversight committee includes two students, two faculty members (one Senate and one non-Senate), and two staff members (one union and one non-union), who are nominated and elected by their peers for two-year terms. The union staff representative election will be held in spring 2021.
