Emergency procedures

To be effective in the event of an emergency situation, the university seeks to identify and support students, faculty, staff and visitors with disabilities who need assistance during an emergency.

If you are a person with a disability, even if you have not otherwise self-identified or asked for an accommodation, the university encourages you to complete an Emergency Assistance Referral Form if you may need assistance in the event of an emergency.

Completed Emergency Assistance Referral Forms will be kept on file by the Office of Emergency Preparedness. The forms will not be kept in student or personnel records and will be used only to develop an emergency plan for you, if you so desire.

The university’s emergency procedures for students, faculty, staff and visitors with disabilities and Emergency Assistance Referral Forms may be found online at
