Keeping you and our campus safe

Posted on Friday, August 1st, 2014 by Scott Fulton under Home.

No one likes to imagine a disturbance to the peace and safety of our university. While we hope that a crisis or emergency will never occur at UNCG, the university has made emergency preparedness a priority. It has in place an Emergency Planning and Response Team (EPART) and a Chancellor’s Crisis Policy Group which are ready to be activated if an urgent situation arises.

UNCG’s response system helps ensure campus-wide awareness of how to respond to crises. It is based on a strategically-developed and continually updated Crisis Communication Plan. By using multiple communication systems, the university will provide rapid notification to more than 18,000 students and 2,500 faculty and staff.
