Mission and Vision
It is the mission of the Office of Environmental Health & Safety to support the academic and administrative functions of the university so as to help ensure a safe and healthful workplace as well as the management of hazardous materials in an environmentally sound manner. This is accomplished through collaborative, team-oriented methods that identify the optimum compliance strategies in harmony with the activities of the university.
EH&S aims to establish comprehensive occupational health and safety compliance programs which are seamlessly and systematically integrated into the academic and administrative activities of the university and, consequently, preserve the human and fiscal resources of the university. Likewise, EH&S aims to demonstrate leadership in implementing environmentally sound hazardous materials/waste management practices, to demonstrate a model of environmental stewardship beyond mere compliance.
