Emergency Readiness Training for Faculty - scheduled for November 2, 2017
This informational session on Emergency Readiness has been designed specifically for faculty members and promises to be both informative and provocative. All full-time faculty are required to attend. Please note that if you have already attended a session, you do not need to attend this workshop.
The training 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, which promises for an interactive and informed dialogue.
The workshop will be held on Thursday, November 2, 2017, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
