Emergency Management is a department within the Division of Student Affairs and we focus on coordinating the University's emergency prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, continuity and recovery efforts. We are a small team, but support a wide range of initiatives, planning, training & exercises and outreach activities. View our contact information to learn more about us.
The University Police Department and Emergency Management are co-presenting five 90-minute sessions focused on the prevention, preparedness and response to active aggressor/shooter situations. These discussion-style training sessions are open to every student, faculty and staff. Since space is limited, pre-registration is required.
We are happy to publish the first strategic plan for the University's emergency management program. This plan, developed in consultation with 30 on and off-campus partners, provides a high-level roadmap for improving the University's capability to manage emergencies and disasters, before, during and after they occur.
