In any emergency, UCCS' overriding goals are to:

  • Protect life
  • Secure critical infrastructure and facilities
  • Resume teaching and research programs

At UCCS, planning for emergencies is part of normal business planning and campus life, and all members of the campus community share a responsibility for preparedness.  An emergency can strike anytime or anywhere and a disaster will affect everyone. Therefore:

  • All campus units are expected to maintain a Department Emergency Plan to protect personnel and programs, and to support campus emergency response and recovery.
  • All employees and students have a personal responsibility for knowing what to do before, during and after an emergency in order to ensure their personal safety and protect their work.
  • The University maintains a comprehensive emergency preparedness education and training program to mitigate potential hazards and to familiarize students and employees with emergency procedures.
