Emergency Management Coordinator

The Emergency Management Coordinator helps the University prepare for, respond to, recover from and reduce the effects of disasters. This is accomplished through preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation efforts aimed towards building a disaster resilient University. These efforts include education, prevention and readiness of our entire University community.

The primary goal of the Emergency Management Services Department is to provide support to faculty, staff, and students – as the primary emergency management resource for the University. The second goal is beginning the accreditation self-assessment process in order to seek accreditation through EMAP – the Emergency Management Accreditation Program. Only three universities in the U.S. currently hold accredited status through EMAP. The third goal is to ensure all divisions are developing and maintaining plans for business continuity in the event of a disaster.
