The crisis management team is comprised of university leaders and key campus directors. Its goal: To quickly assess and respond to emergencies.

Wingate University is committed to maintaining a healthy and safe environment. The specifics of our crisis management processes are outlined in our 2016-2017 Crisis Management Response Plan (PDF).

  3. Analyze available resources and prioritize response actions.
  4. Contact and maintain relationships with key local resources.
  5. Communicate information to students, employees and families.
