Emergency Operating Plan
The safety of our students, faculty, and staff is paramount to the University and we have an Emergency Operating Plan in place to ensure the effective management of emergency efforts involved in preparing for and responding to situations associated with emergencies.
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. The major goals of the Plan are the preservation of life, the protection of property and continuity of academic and business operations. In any disaster situation, the University expects to make full utilization of its resources to meet its needs and to call upon outside agencies when University resources are or become inadequate.
