Message from the Emergency Planning Lieutenant

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is committed to protecting the safety and security of our community. Emergencies, disasters, accidents and criminal activity can occur at any time without warning. We continually review and update preparedness measures to address evolving threats. Preparedness at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign involves collaboration between the leaders of our campus units, schools, colleges and departments.

The Office of Campus Emergency Planning provides resources, guidance and training to the University community in matters related to prevention/mitigation, planning, response and recovery. We take great pride in the relationships established between critical stakeholders and those who work in the Division of Public Safety. These relationships continue to facilitate trust and increase critical communication during emergency and non-emergency situations.

We would like to remind our community that being physically and psychologically prepared for emergency situations is an individual, as well as an organizational, responsibility. Safety and security is a shared responsibility, and only by working together can we establish an environment that is ready to respond to emergency situations. We invite you to use this Web site as a resource to prepare yourself as well as your workplace. If you have questions or need additional assistance, please contact Todd Short at tshort@illinois.edu.
