Since our founding in 1966, Columbia State has fostered a safe, nurturing environment on each of its five campuses. To that end, we constantly strive to anticipate all possible threats—no matter how unlikely—and provide our students, faculty and staff with information they may need to navigate an emergency or other dangerous situation.
This guide is designed to help you make the best decisions possible to protect yourself and those around you when the unexpected—and potentially life-threatening—happens.
The best first step in any emergency? Stay calm.
