 Emergency Incidents Involving International Students 



In the event of an emergency incident or disaster involving any or all of the students of Slippery Rock University the SRU Emergency Operations Plan will provide the appropriate guidelines to the response by the University. This will also apply to the University’s international student population. However, numerous issues of an international nature require specialized attention. These include cultural, religious, language, and legal concerns as well as complications associated with the distance between SRU and their families around the world.

To ensure appropriate and sensitive care, emergency/crisis coordination for international students shall be the responsibility of the International Services Office, and in particular, the International Student Advisor.

Important Note:
The primary responsibility for the international student(s) will reside under the Slippery Rock University Emergency Operations Plan until the ECT deems it appropriate to shift that responsibility to the IOC under the Emergency Preparedness Plan for International Students (EPPIS).   

For any additional information please refer to the Emergency Preparedness Plan for International Students.

In the event an emergency incident or disaster involves an international
student(s) notify the International Services Office at:

Campus phone:  ext. 2057
