Crisis Response

Crisis Response

The university has a detailed crisis plan that is designed to provide resources, coordination and information to responders, the campus community and the community at large.

The plan takes an “all-hazards” approach, giving administrators the flexibility to address any major or minor incident that might impact the campus community.

The plan is an evolving document and is constantly reviewed and updated for improvements.
