University Response Plan (URP)

The Emergency Management Unit, in conjunction with campus leadership, is responsible for the development and maintenance of the University Response Plan (URP). The URP is an all-hazards plan for responding to and recovering from a wide variety of disasters and emergencies.

Why Have a URP?

UW-Madison is vulnerable to many different types of threats. From natural disasters to man-made accidents, our campus must be ready to respond to anything. The University Response Plan provides the needed framework to ensure a safe and secure environment for all members of the University community.

The URP contains sensitive information making it unavailable for public distribution. If you wish to review the URP, contact the Emergency Management Unit to setup a time to review the plan with a staff member.
