Continuity of Operations

The continuity of operations program prepares the university to respond and recover from events, including earthquakes, power outages, pandemics, and cyber incidents that disrupt our ability to continue operations. This program seeks to work with all areas of the university to identify critical and essential operations, identify resources necessary to support these operations, and build plans that help minimize an interruption to these operations and services. In addition to building and updating COOP plans, Emergency Management facilitates recovery exercises to test the resiliency of our plans and train employees on how to activate and carry out their COOP plans.
