Newberg Campus Emergency response Plan
The university has developed a comprehensive 62 page emergency response plan to handle crises of many types. This plan has been reviewed and approved by local police and fire departments. It includes contingencies for housing and feeding students, as well as for providing professional medical help and counseling should the need arise.
Highlights of the plan include:
