Declaration of Campus State of Emergency


The authority to declare a campus state of emergency rests with the President. The Executive Director of Facilities and Safety, the Executive Vice President, their designee, and/or legal counsel will inform and advise the President and carry out the orders of the President during the emergency situation. During this time, the appropriate procedures to safeguard persons and property, and maintain educational facilities will be implemented.

 

In the event of earthquakes, fires, storms or major disaster occurring in or about the campus, the Cumberland University administration will work with Wilson County Emergency Management Agency and the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency to determine the extent of any damage to university property and what action to be taken.
