During an emergency situation involving the campus, UNL's homepage may convert to a low bandwidth version, free of the majority of graphics to ease transmission and server load. The homepage as well as this emergency website will be a primary mode of communication, to be continually updated.
During an emergency, our goal is to communicate first with those most immediately impacted; people who need to evacuate or seek medical treatment.
University Communications leads the communications response during and after emergencies, factually assessing each situation, developing the communications response, and assembling a crisis communications team. The goal is to provide accurate and timely information to minimize rumors and restore order and confidence.
During an emergency, the UNL community and general public will receive information through the web and news media as well as by email and text through UNL Alert.
The UNL Newsroom houses information about current or recent emergencies on campus and updates on the University's emergency management activities.
