10. Communications Plan - Media Communication Plan

A crisis situation is defined as any circumstance or event having a real or potential major impact on the campus community as a whole. Each crisis or emergency will require a unique public information response dependent on the nature of the crisis.  This plan is not intended to change the way emergencies are reported.  911 and Campus Safety should be called immediately upon an emergency.  The purpose of this plan is to outline communications procedures during a crisis, including communications within the college community and with the media and the public.

It is the goal of this communication plan to establish guidelines for dealing with a variety of situations, and to ensure the campus staff is familiar with those procedures and their role in the event of an emergency or controversial situation.  The plan should be used in conjunction with the decision making process of the College.
