On Tuesday, March 9, Dr. Matt Bostrom, president of the Center for Values-Based Initiatives, will give a presentation for faculty, staff, and students of Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota on “Character, Policing, and Community Trust.” The event, hosted by Character and Virtue Education, will occur between noon and 1:30 p.m. at the University Center on the Twin Cities Campus with a limited audience and also will be livestreamed.

Dr. Bostrom began his law enforcement career in 1982. He served with the Saint Paul Police Department as police officer, sergeant, lieutenant, commander, senior commander, chief of staff, and assistant chief of operations, and retired as Ramsey County Sheriff in 2017. The hallmark of Bostrom’s service as sheriff was a focus on increasing the level of trust between the community and police officers.

All faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend the event virtually, but registration is required at the Character and Virtue event website. A Saint Mary’s email account will be needed to register. For information about attending the event in-person, contact cve@smumn.edu.
