Abstract: In April of 2008, UMass Lowell conducted a web-based survey of students regarding issues of campus safety. Students were asked about their perceptions of campus safety and related university services, actions taken to prevent victimization, and if they were the victim of six different crimes during the preceding semester: physical assault; sexual assault; harassment or stalking; hate crimes, theft, damaged, or vandalized property; and identity theft. Results of the survey are presented, along with response variation by key demographic characteristics of the respondents.

Abstract: Researcher and practitioner partnerships have intensified in recent years as a result of our growing knowledge of collaboration benefits. When faced with pressing problems such as gang violence, communities look to researchers to help identify individual and situational factors that contribute to increased violence. Moreover, practitioners and researchers alike are keen on capturing the effects of comprehensive approaches, and the challenges of implementing and evaluating multi-agency strategies.

The application of action-research methodologies fits well with the needs of practitioners and researchers who are looking to capture the process (e.g. organizational, programmatic) and outcome (e.g. impact) products of complex community safety initiatives. Indeed, fundamental objectives of these partnerships are to use information to sharpen a community’s understanding of crime problems, tailor and direct limited resources, and build knowledge around “what works.”

This paper discusses an action research partnership in Lowell, Massachusetts and the lessons learned from the implementation of a multi-agency prevention, intervention and enforcement strategy. Specifically, the process data collected and analyzed point to important issues around communication, coordination and the organizational change aspects of comprehensive community strategies. Preliminary results support existing evidence that attention to relational and organizational dimensions of collaborative approaches is central to program implementation.

4. Bond, Brenda. "Institutionalizing Evidence-Based Policing in Lowell, MA" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology – 71st Annual Meeting, Washington Hilton, Washington, DC, <Not Available>. 2019-09-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1032334_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: Lowell’s first Smart Policing Initiative resulted in reductions in property crimes for almost all of the hot spots targeted. However, the real impact from this effort were the resulting organizational changes, from officers learning how data can be valuable in identifying and understanding the dynamics of chronic crime locations, to patrol becoming more engaged with the Crime Analysis and Intelligence Units and attending to indicators of crime and disorder quickly. Due to these lessons learned, the focus of the Lowell Police Department’s current SPI is to institutionalize evidence-based policing through training to first line supervisors and leadership. This panel presentation will share the challenges and evaluation results of department-wide organizational change.

5. Ishov, Zakhar. "Russian and American Versions of One Italian 'Winter Noon': Brodsky and Lowell Translating Saba" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASEEES Convention, Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, <Not Available>. 2019-09-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1020367_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: In my paper I carry out a line-by-line comparison of Lowell’s and Brodsky’s translation of the same poem by Saba – “Winter Noon.” I show that despite their coming from very different schools of poetic translation – Lowell translated Saba into free verse, while Brodsky, in keeping with the principles of mimetic translation, preserved the verse meter of the original – both translations represent two variations of poetic adaptation. It is fascinating to see how both Lowell and Brodsky, while using different approaches, each in his own way appropriate themselves of a poem by such a personal and idiosyncratic poet as Saba, who shunned modernism and was deeply tied to his native city of Trieste.
