Stanford University

Emergency Management

The Stanford University Office of Emergency Management (OEM) serves as the administrative function charged with creating the framework within which the University can reduce vulnerability and sensitivity to hazards and cope with crisis and disasters.

The OEM works to ensure that the University can maintain and preserve its mission of academic inquiry, learning, and service after a crisis or disaster event.  Our vision is to create a disaster resilient university while protecting the University by facilitating the coordination and integration of all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the University’s ability to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, continue operations during, and recover from natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other human-caused crises or disasters.
