UW Emergency Management

About us

The UW Emergency Management (UWEM) team is comprised of a group of dedicated professionals committed to ensuring your safety on- (and off-) campus. Since our office was established in 2003, we have lived up to our mission and values by serving as a global model for other institutions of higher learning. With a strong strategic organization, we have developed and maintain a number of operational metrics (previously a balanced scorecard) to keep track of our current progress.  Our unofficial motto of “Semper Gumby” (always flexible) is key to our understanding of the challenges of constantly ensuring that the UW is prepared to handle any major event, crisis or disaster that may severely impact our core missions of education, research and public service.
