PEACE OUTside Campus, The Lindsey M. Bonistall Foundation is dedicated to promoting peaceful and safe living environments in college communities. Their goal is to empower students and their families to be proactive in safeguarding themselves against crime. The seeds of PEACE OUTside Campus, The Lindsey M. Bonistall Foundation were planted in the violent attack and murder of its namesake in 2005. Lindsey’s family and friends vowed to take whatever steps necessary to prevent a similar tragedy from happening to other families and began the foundation in her honor. Since its inception in July 2005, PEACE OUTside Campus has advocated for student safety and shared its message of positive empowerment with countless young people, parents and educators through our programs: Teens ‘N Transition and Identify The Risk. Our online programs, Living Off-Campus 101, Off-Campus Housing Guidelines, and our website are important resources that support the message of personal safety. Our success in reducing the risk of violent crime is measured by the attacks that never occur, headlines that never appear, and the families who have no cause to grieve.
