OEM Strategic Plan

The Radford University Office of Emergency Management Strategic Plan 2020-2024 details strategic goals over a five-year period, which drive forward both the emergency management program, as well as, the department. Each of the high-level goals is supported through one or more objectives providing depth and context for the planned approach. The Office of Emergency Management seeks to continue enhancing, and further develop university resiliency and preparedness through strategic programmatic efforts. While the Office of Emergency Management will lead these efforts, accomplishing these goals will require internal collaboration with university partners, and external collaboration with key stakeholders. Furthermore, this multi-year strategy advances programs and projects intended to increase the Office of Emergency Management’s capacity and capabilities thereby improving quality of service and experience for the Radford University Community.

The specific goals and objectives set forth within this plan consider programmatic development of the University at a specific point in time. Higher-education institutions are dynamic, this plan or related programs may be altered to address the immediate needs of the University. The Office of Emergency Management will review this plan annually within the context of the current operating environment; change to the strategies identified will be updated through annual progress reports. This strategic plan establishes a series of programmatic baselines from which to identify opportunities to increase programmatic functionality through considered long-term strategies.
