Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by tragic shooting that took place at Umpqua Community College this morning. UWS takes the security of our campus very seriously and has emergency management procedures in place to help keep the campus safe. Whenever a tragedy like this occurs, it forces an institution to revisit their emergency preparedness plan to ensure that they are prepared for any type of emergency. UWS continuously reviews its emergency plan to have the most effective protocols in place. We also have an emergency alert system in place for all students, faculty, and staff. If you are not already registered, please be sure that you do so now: Employees and students may sign up for automatic alerts through the university website. Campus constituents must re-register annually.
