Although voluntary, the University encourages anyone with disabilities to notify the appropriate university personnel of any need in planning for emergencies. This includes but is not limited to students and guests notifying the Office for Student Life and faculty or staff notifying the Human Resources Office.

Please keep the following guidelines in mind during emergency situations:

  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Be positive and realistic.
  • Recognize that you may be on your own for part of the time during an emergency.
  • Recognize that your actions can and will make a difference.
