  • As part of ongoing efforts to re-envision the role of the Clark University Police Department, Chief Lauren Misale has transitioned responsibility for assisting student residents who are locked out of dorm rooms to student employees. Beginning in March, student lock-out assistants have been working every day from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. and will be utilized going forward.
