Institutional Crisis Management


Our mission is to provide for the Rice community before, during, and after a crisis.


We envision a campus community that stands ready to respond, recover, and thrive as an institution of education.

Our multiyear strategic plan is as follows:

  • Establish a standard of coordinated preparedness, prevention, response and recovery by developing:
    • Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) and Annexes
    • Hazard Mitigation Plan
    • Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP)
    • Recovery Plan
  • Increase response and recovery capabilities through training and exercise
  • Maintain inclusion in planning and response
  • Develop and maintain a continual improvement process after each event or incident response
  • Document actions taken and capabilities built
  • Maintain a comprehensive emergency management program
