Several members of the Kent State University community participate in a regular survey of the campus after dark to evaluate the outdoor lighting levels. The campus survey focuses on ensuring that there is adequately lit walkways and parking areas. The group, consisting of people from Residence Services, Parking Services, the Office of the University Architect, Kent State University Police Department, Facilities Planning and Operations and university administration members, finds new areas that could use some improvements during each survey. In recent years, an additional focus has been added since lighting levels are adequate in most areas. The additional evaluation includes upgrading, replacing or eliminating older style fixtures in order to provide a more appealing look to campus. The group also evaluates more energy-efficient lighting methods.
