Emergency Preparedness

The safety of our students, faculty, and staff is paramount to the University and we have emergency procedures in place to ensure the effective management of emergency efforts involved in preparing for and responding to situations associated with emergencies.

Emergency Information:
  • In the event of a major emergency, our emergency web site (www.usd.edu/emergency) will become the University's homepage and will be updated with information about the nature of the emergency and further emergency procedures. Regular updates will be posted as they become available.
  • The Emergency Operating Plan provides USD with a systematic approach for solving problems created by the threat or occurrence of any type of disaster or emergency.
