Missouri Western works to promote the safety of all our community members by developing emergency response plans and educating the campus.


The Emergency Management Team is comprised of members of the campus community who have an active and regular role in preventing and responding to emergencies. This committee drafts and reviews the emergency procedures in place for the campus, and educates the larger campus community.
