Emergency Readiness Training for Faculty

Audience: Full-Time Faculty

This informational session has been designed especially for faculty members to be informative and provocative. All full-time faculty are required to attend.

The session consists of two parts. Presented by Public Safety, the first part describes the University's emergency response plan. It reviews systems of communication and notification to the University community in the event of an emergency, and describes appropriate protocol in an evacuation or stay in place situation. The second part is presented by the Office of Student Wellness. It addresses student behavioral issues and how to recognize and respond to a student who is in distress and/or who is exhibiting disruptive behavior. It further describes the University resources for handling student issues and the University's proscribed reporting protocol for students in crisis situations. The speakers are open to questions for an interactive and informed dialogue.
