OEM's Role

Since the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, the University has maintained an increased level of security and vigilance on our campuses. We conduct emergency drills on a regular basis, working together with our counterparts on the municipal and county levels. These procedures are under continual review in order to maintain and enhance our ability to quickly and effectively respond to a public safety emergency.
