After the death of 19-year-old Dylan Hernandez, President Adela de la Torre called for the creation of two Presidential Task Force groups in a Nov. 12 campus-wide email.

The Presidential Task Force on Student Activities and Safety and the Presidential Task Force of Alcohol and Substance Misuse have been created to address issues occurring at San Diego State, according to the email from de la Torre.

“This is part of a larger issue facing college and university campuses nationwide and we want to ensure SDSU is leading the conversation regarding student safety and well-being,” the statement said. “To do that, we are launching this process to identify and adopt best practices for the benefit of all of us.”

The university is currently identifying chairs and members for each task force and intends to have their first meetings this month. Members of the SDSU community are encouraged to provide input on these decisions.

Presidential Task Force on Student Activities and Safety

The Presidential Task Force on Student Activities and Safety will have an emphasis on reviewing Greek life, student organizations and Associated Students. This task force is dedicated to evaluating behaviors, policies, processes, procedures and education of organizations on campus.

This group will be composed of students, faculty, staff, alumni and administrators. They will gather a report of findings and suggestions through the 2019-2020 academic year and submit them by April 2020.

Presidential Task Force of Alcohol and Substance Misuse

The Presidential Task Force of Alcohol and Substance Misuse is dedicated to behaviors, trends, policies, prevention and responses to alcohol and drug use at the university. This group will be composed of students, faculty, parents, staff, administrators, experts and researchers within the campus.

They will gather a report through summer 2020 and report findings by July 1, 2020.
