There are many ways to get around
By Milaap Chahal - Staff Reporter
Highline has many vehi- cles rolling about on its cam- pus â€“ from delivery trucks to staff Club Cars.
But few students rely on wheels to navigate the campus. Students are permitted to bring any form of transpor- tation â€“from bikes to scoot-
ersâ€“ as long as it is safe. "Honestly, I've only see four to five people on long- boards and three to two peo- ple a day on bikes," said Sgt.
Derek Dean of Public Safety. "It's not too common on this campus to ride a bike be- cause of the hill," said Fran- cesca Fender the associate director of Public Safety and
Emergency Management. But if students can manage the hill, bikes are permissible. "I don't think there is policy against motorized ve- hicles as long as you're not mowing down people and there are no safety issues," said David Menke, director of Public Safety and Emer-
gency Management.â€¨She said the main concern
would be to prevent theft. "There's nothing stopping you [from leaving] your bike on the bike rack for the whole quarter, but it is more suscep-
tible to theft," Menke said.â€¨"I do see a lot of people use scooters for people who have mobility challenges," Fender
said.â€¨So, while personal vehicles
are not necessarily a problem there are larger vehicles that just don't belong.
Highline had issues in the past when cars that are not permitted to drive on cam- pus ventured on to the wide sidewalks due to the lack of a barriers.
Sgt. Dean blamed GPS for the errant drivers.
"Usually its Uber or Lyft and they have their little nav- igation on and they were told to go straight here and its right on the sidewalk," Men- ke said.
Fender said the lack of barriers is to keep the cam- pus accessible to emergency vehicles.
"You also have to keep it accessible to emergency vehi- cles," she said.
Delivery trucks, such Co- ca-Cola or the water truck also will use the walkways. Other than that, most of the vehicles are Club Cars from Facilities. They are all elec- tric except the one that Pub- lic Safety has.
"Public Safety has a gas one in case of an emergency like a power outage," Menke said.
New degree to be introduced in fall
Design choices that accommodate the greatest range of users are more equitable, serving people with diverse abilities.
Students will be able to com- bine their passion for visual design, technology and problem-solving with equity-based design.
The degree will also include a focus on diversity and globalism studies, to help future designers understand the world and community in which they design for.
