Large-scale special events – Your Input is key to our success!!

Large-scale special events can have a big impact on campus operations. We are reaching out to our UW community. UW Emergency Management is tasked with planning for and overseeing these kinds of events, in partnership with UW Police Department. In reviewing events over the last year, such as Inauguration Day, May Day and Commencement, we found opportunities for better documenting and planning for these kinds of large events. We’ve put together a draft framework for planning and event coordination.

We are hoping that you, the University of Washington community can review the document and provide additional feedback to us. Our goal is to increase campus awareness so that future planning efforts will have more opportunities for success. If you have any feedback or comments, please reply directly to this email. Your thoughts will be incorporated into the collective whole of feedback for improvement consideration. Please send your feedback no later than Monday, July 31, 2017, directly to Elizabeth “Eli” King eliking@uw.edu

Thank you for your support and commitment to the health, safety, and security of UW.
