This is the second fall semester that the Roadway Safety Institute offered a seminar series featuring leading safety researchers presenting on topics related to our research focus areas of high-risk road users and traffic safety systems.

Presenters have hailed from our consortium member institutions as well as universities across the country, including the University of Texas at Austin, University of Wisconsin–Madison, University of Washington, University of Massachusetts Amherst, and University of Maine.

Each seminar qualifies for one Professional Development Hour (PDH), and they are also available as a one-credit course at the University of Minnesota; nine students are taking the course for credit. Our researchers are also engaging students at partner universities: in Hugo Zhou’s (Auburn University) research course, students can earn credit by remotely attending the seminars. Albert Luo (Southern Illinois University Edwardsville) is offering the series as an extra credit opportunity in one of his courses.

Highlights from two seminars are featured in this issue of Roadway Safety Institute News, and all seminars are recorded and available for viewing on the RSI website.
