Emergency Response

Northwest Christian University seeks to foster a safe and secure living-learning environment for its students, faculty, and staff. In times of crisis, the college activates its Critical Incident Response Team to ensure the well-being of the campus community.


Northwest Christian University is committed to the safety and security of the campus community. Plans are in place to respond to crises which may impact the campus community. The following are highlights of that plan:

  • Should a natural disaster, terrorist attack, or other emergency arise, the campus’ Critical Incident Response Team is activated. At that time, leaders of each critical operational department meet to execute decisions. Each member of this team is on-call around the clock.
  • Residential students receive instruction regarding safe evacuation as part of their initial orientation in the fall. Annual fire drills in the residence halls test plan effectiveness.
  • The Morse Event Center provides alternative housing space for residence in the case of emergency.
