Campuswide Safety

California State University, Chico is deeply committed to the safety of its faculty, staff, and students. There are several campus programs designed to promote campuswide safety.
  • Campus Card Access
    • Most buildings on campus are equipped with card access, which works to provide the highest degree of security possible for our students, faculty, staff, and guests.
  • Campus Emergency Response Team (CERT)
    • The Campus Emergency Response Team is comprised of faculty, staff, and volunteers who are trained to respond in the event of campus and community emergency situations to augment first responder resources.
  • Emergency Notification
    • The University can now send notice of on-campus emergency situations to students, faculty, and staff in the event of very serious incidents and dangerous situations that would jeopardize the health and safety of the campus community.
  • Emergency Preparedness
    • CSU, Chico has a comprehensive Emergency Preparedness and Management Plan (EPMP) outlining campus emergency response and recovery procedures.
