You are the president of a large metropolitan university in an urban setting.
At 3 a.m. you receive a phone call from the campus police captain. Eight students had gained entrance to the main building and were roller blading up and down the building’s extensive labyrinth of halls. They were singing rude songs. One girl under-estimated her ability to stop and rolled down a set of concrete steps. Her leg was broken. A reporter had been in the police dispatch room when the call came in reporting the incident. He grabbed his camera. The next day the front page story read: Students play Roller Derby in University Hall.
The next day, the President of the Board of Trustees calls you and demands that you make a full written report at the next Board meeting entitled: “How Could Such A Thing Have Happened Here?”
Write a 3 –page report of the event using the content on The Risky Shift above. Your report should contain the following parts:
1. A narrative of what went on in University Hall.
2. How did the students talked themselves into performing such a risky stunt.
3. What you intend to do (what specific, concrete actions ) to teach the students to respect university property in the future.
