Emergency Information and Preparedness


The Office of Emergency Management at Rowan University works to ensure that the University can preserve its mission of transforming lives through education, research, and public service when impacted by a major emergency or disaster. We accomplish this through the implementation of programs and projects in emergency and disaster planning, training, mitigation, response, and recovery. The Office of Emergency Management and Department of Public Safety work together to support a 24 hour, 365 day operation. The departments are capable of responding to any emergency university-wide, whether that is a hazardous materials incident, a weather event, or an armed assailant. We welcome you to explore the information presented on our website and encourage you to contact us for further details concerning emergency management efforts.
