Tragic national events and increased threats at area education institutions have focused attention on campus safety.

At Governors State University the safety of our students, faculty and staff has always been a top priority. And it shows. GSU is the ranked the safest public university campus in Illinois and northwest Indiana.

GSU maintains a permanent Emergency Response Team whose job it is to continuously review campus emergency preparedness and procedures and to implement new procedures to address safety issues.

To ensure that our students, faculty and staff are alerted about emergencies, GSU uses multiple communications channels. These tools include the GSU website; regroup, our mass messaging system; and campus media. They help ensure we communicate critical information is as quickly as possible.

The resources in this website are designed to assist the GSU community in the prevention of and response to emergency situations.
