Emergency Communications


In the event that a crisis occurs on University property, the Communications & Media Relations Office needs to be notified as soon as possible. As chief spokesperson for the university, the Communications & Media Relations Office will ultimately be responsible for the communications efforts that relate to the crisis.

As such, Communications & Media Relations Office will coordinate communications efforts as appropriate with the university and/or other governmental agencies that may be involved in the crisis event. Communications & Media Relations Office will disseminate press releases, respond to media inquiries, produce radio and television announcements, maintain/update the university web site, provide logistics and support for press conferences, and serve in supporting other forms of communications as needed.
