The University of Akron Emergency Management team’s goal is to integrate emergency planning, response, recovery and mitigation for a number of hazards, both manmade and natural disasters, into the daily operations at the University of Akron. As a Disaster Resistant University, the University of Akron promotes a disaster resistant culture on campus through education, mitigation projects, and well-practiced emergency plans and procedures. By working toward these goals we can feel confident about the continuity of the business of education and research, in the event of emergencies or disasters.
