Environmental Health and Safety (EHS)

Environmental Health, and Safety provides quality service and creates a safe and healthy environment for our faculty, staff, students, and community. This task can only be achieved by working together as a team with all stakeholders. This also necessitates being good stewards of the university’s resources to create an environment of sustainability that will take us well into the future.
