The ODU Office of Emergency Management is responsible for building, sustaining, and continually improving a comprehensive emergency management program that promotes institutional resiliency, departmental readiness, and individual preparedness.

Through an inclusive, all-hazards approach, we facilitate prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery activities to allow the University to focus on its chief mission areas of academics, research, and community engagement.
