The Office of Emergency Management is responsible for the comprehensive, "all-hazards/threats" emergency and disaster management planning efforts for Tulane University. We provide planning, training, inter-departmental coordination and emergency response assistance for major emergencies or disasters.
In keeping with the university mission "to be a truly distinctive international university," the mission of the Office of Emergency Management is to achieve three primary goals:
We value our community's safety – our students, faculty and staff are not exposed to hazards & risks that could negatively impact their health, personal safety, or ability to create, communicate and conserve knowledge.
We are prepared for anything – our focus is to prepare for any type of unplanned event that may impact the Tulane family. We will ensure that our students, faculty and staff are always ready to react and respond to any type of emergency.
We can always do better – our job is never complete; we never stop learning. We will endeavor to always identify ways to improve and enhance emergency prevention, preparedness and response at Tulane. We will also collaborate with our partners outside of the Tulane community to further enhance the preparedness of the university and the entire New Orleans community.
Our Vision for the Future
We will build a strong reputation as the leader in university emergency management through our actions.
Tulane will be recognized as being the best prepared university for managing and responding to emergency events. Our students, faculty and staff will be confident that the university has taken decisive actions to prepare for and respond to emergencies. As a result we will be one of the safest campuses in the country.
Tulane will be the model institution for emergency management. Our preparedness and response plans will be living documents that are embraced and fully-integrated across the entire university, and we will be sought out for our expertise and experience by others.
The staff in the Office of Emergency Management combine years of experience in the public and private sector. On a daily basis we work to make Tulane a safer and more prepared community through our mitigation, preparation and response to all hazards emergencies at Tulane University.
