Who is making decisions on campus safety and health issues? (Updated May 7)

When a public health emergency emerges, the Public Health Emergency Planning team provides planning and response as needed. The group is co-chaired by the director, PUSH and the senior director, Environmental Health and Public Safety, and includes members of various campus departments as well as the Tippecanoe County Health Department.

The university’s Integrated Emergency Management Plan guides preparedness for a number of specific emergencies, and includes guidance for public health emergencies.

We look to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and U.S. State Department for recommendations and travel advisories.
