The Department of Emergency Management's mission is to help the University prepare for, respond to, recover from, and reduce the effects of disasters. Our mission is accomplished through preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation.
DEM serves the Twin Cities, Crookston, Duluth, Morris and Rochester campuses.
If You See Something Say Something
If you see something suspicious taking place on campus, report that behavior or activity to the UMPD, or in the case of emergency call 9-1-1. Factors such as race, ethnicity, national origin, or religious affiliation alone are not suspicious. You should report only suspicious behavior and situations (e.g., an unattended backpack in a public place or someone trying to break into a restricted area) rather than beliefs, thoughts, ideas, expressions, associations, or speech unrelated to terrorism or other criminal activity.
If your department is interested in a "See Something, Say Something" poster to display, please contact DEM. The posters are available in English and Somali.
System-wide responsibility for developing, implementing & sustaining the emergency management program of the University.
