Emergency Management

The Illinois State University campus is large University with a daily population of around 25,000 people.  Our University is located within the larger Bloomington-Normal community of approximately 165,000 residents.  For more than 150 years, the University has provided an environment for our students to live, learn, and study; for our faculty to teach, research, and provide public service; for our staff to work; and for the public to enjoy cultural activities and other University services. 
Natural, human-caused and technological emergencies are threats that face the University community and we are committed to developing a culture of preparedness among our University constituents.  This culture of preparedness permeates every aspect of University life and encourages active participation by each of us.  This idea is carried out through active training, drills, collaboration, exercises and heightened awareness. 
ISU's comprehensive emergency management program not only covers preparedness, but also prevention, mitigation, response and recovery operations.  This commitment to a comprehensive emergency management lifecycle helps ensure that Illinois State University can effectively respond to a wide range of hazards and threats that could impact our campus.
This website includes plans, procedures, programs, guidance documents, etc. related to the University's emergency management program.  You are encouraged to visit the many links on this website and learn what YOU can do to take part in this effort.  Any questions may be directed to the University Emergency Manager at 309-438-8325.
