What to Do in an Emergency
The University will make every attempt to notify the entire campus community about emergencies and imminent dangers. However, it is recommended that students are also aware of what to do in case of an emergency or dangerous situation.
Student Life provides online resources to help students be proactive about preparing themselves to live comfortably and safely on and off campus. Resources are for incidences such as personal injury, weather, earthquake, fire, power outage, and active shooter.
Campus Safety Services
Campus Safety Services maintains safety, security, and peace on campus through services that aim to fulfill key objectives of empathy, responsiveness, assurance, representation, and reliability.
Environment, Health & Safety Department
