Emergency Preparedness

Midwestern University is dedicated to protecting the well-being of its students, staff and faculty as well as its research and intellectual property, equipment and facilities. The University strives to reduce the impacts of emergencies and increase the effectiveness of the campus community in responding to and recovering from their inevitable occurrences. Doing so will provide continuity of campus operations in furtherance of the University's mission. In the event of a campus-wide, natural or man-made disaster, information will be communicated to our students, faculty and staff.

The University's Emergency Response  Team (ERT) encourages everyone to read the Emergency Response Plans and be familiar with your roles and responsibilities in preparing for an emergency.

Emergency Response Teams

Two specific groups have been established to handle emergencies, potential crises and disastrous occurrences including the Emergency Response Team (ERT) and the Crisis Communication Team (CCT). ERT is responsible for formulating plans, initiating/directing immediate response to the emergency, advising the University President and keeping CCT informed.
