Crisis management

While Wayne State University works closely with with the WSUPD to keep campus safe and prevent crime, crises including closures, inclement weather and campus emergencies can occur. To provide a quick and appropriate response, Wayne State has a crisis management team composed of members of the campus community and the WSUPD. This team works together to appropriately assess the situation and form a response.

The responsibilities of the crisis management team include:

  • Developing and updating the overall crisis plans
  • Conducting crisis simulations
  • Informing the campus about safety and crisis preparedness
  • Ensuring that accurate and timely information is provided during an emergency
