At the University of Oregon, the safety of our students is a high priority. Classroom safety is an easy topic to incorporate into class preparation and course materials to ensure student safety.

Before class begins
Take these steps before class begins to know what you can do in the case of an emergency:
- Determine what emergency information you will include on your class syllabus such as evacuation routes, assembly location (see below), or resource lists.
- Sign up for UOAlert and/or confirm your existing registered number via DuckWeb.
- Consider classroom evacuation.
- Visit your classrooms to check the building evacuation maps (posted in most hallways) for routes and building assembly area
- Know at least two evacuation routes from each of your classrooms
- Pick a specific assembly area, near the building’s designated area, for each class
- Print hardcopies of the class rosters and keep with your class materials so that you will know if all students are present after an evacuation.
- Point out and review the Emergency Procedures Posters that are posted in all general pool classrooms. If your classroom is missing a poster, please contact Emergency Management
