The DRU Network, Oregon Campus Resilience Consortium, and the University of Oregon are proud to announce the first national Campus Incident Management Team Workshop. We intend to host a 1 1/2 day workshop at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon, on February 25 and 26, 2020.
An Incident Management Team (IMT) provides on-scene incident management support during incidents or events that exceed a campus's or jurisdiction's capability or capacity. Teams can include members of local, state, tribal, and territorial entities; Nongovernmental Organizations (NGO); and private sector organizations. Teams can be both residential (e.g., made up of members from one campus) or encompass various campuses, agencies, and jurisdictions.
The workshop is intended for individuals involved in leading or participating in their university’s or college’s crisis or emergency response, continuity, and recovery efforts for all hazards.
Workshop objectives include: 
  • Learning from campuses that have been at the forefront of IMT development and learn how they are structured, maintained and supported.  
  • Learning practical and hands-on approaches to building an IMT on campus and community.  
  • Sharing real-world examples and promising practices from current IMTs and campuses that used a team to manage fast-moving and complex events and incidents. Including large sporting events, meningitis outbreaks, business disruption, mass casualty events, etc. 
  • Sharing mutual aid resources available and how to access them (e.g., National Intercollegiate Mutual Aid Agreement – NIMAA)
  • Networking with other professionals from around the country that are working to advance emergency preparedness, crisis and risk management, and resilience on their campuses.  
The workshop is limited to 50 participants to help foster interactive learning, constructive conversations, and networking between attendees and speakers.  
Cost: $175 per person
