Welcome to Safety and Environmental Management

The Safety & Environmental Management (SEM) Department supports the University’s mission by providing training, guidance, and consultation services to all members of the university community on matters related to safety and environmental health. SEM policies are drafted to foster a safe and healthful campus environment and to comply with various regulatory requirements.

The SEM staff works with a network of Safety Coordinators to foster an attitude of safety and environmental awareness within the university community. SEM also serves as a liaison to local, state, and federal regulatory agencies, governing safety and environmental health.
