Related Annual Security Report Information

For a complete listing of all campus security policies pertaining to the Anchorage campus, see the 2018 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report. Following is a partial compilation of campus safety policies, procedures, and programs in place at the Anchorage campus. Additional information can also be accessed by using the links on the left-hand side of this page. 

  • Reporting a Crime

    Community members, students, faculty, staff, and guests are strongly encouraged to report all campus crimes and public-safety related incidents to the University Police Department (UPD) in a timely manner. UPD incident reports involving students may be forwarded to the Dean of Students Office for review and potential action through the student disciplinary process. Likewise, UPD incident reports involving faculty may be forwarded to the Provosts Office and incident reports involving staff may be forwarded to Human Resources.

    In an emergency, dial 911. You may also use an emergency phone in an elevator, or use one of the blue-lighted emergency phones throughout campus. For non-emergencies on campus, you can contact UPD at 786-1120. From outside the Anchorage area, you may dial (907) 786-1120. Dispatchers are available at these respective telephone numbers 24 hours a day. 

    If a sexual assault should occur, staff on the scene, including UPD, will offer the victim a wide variety of services. UPD has members trained to respond as part of the local Sexual Assault Response Team (SART); these team members may be called out and are available to assist a victim 24 hours a day. 

    Crimes should be reported to UPD to ensure inclusion in the annual crime statistics and to aid in providing emergency notification and/or timely warning notices to the community, when appropriate. If a crime occurring on campus is not reported to UPD or another campus security authority, UAA will be unaware of the crime, and therefore, the crime would not be included in the campus crime statistics. Here is a list of other professionals on the Anchorage campus whom you may contact to report a crime:

  • Timely Warnings

    Timely warnings are issued when: 

    1. A Clery crime that occurs within our Clery geography is reported directly to the University Police Department (UPD) or indirectly to UPD through a campus security authority or the Anchorage Police Department; and 
    2. It is considered to represent a serious or continuing threat to students and employees. 

    A timely warning may also be issued for other non-Clery crimes that occur within or near campus when they have the potential to be a serious or continuing threat to students and employees. UPD and/or the Incident Management Team (IMT) are responsible for issuing timely warning. The IMT consists of members from Student Affairs, University Police, Facilities and Campus Services, and University Advancement. Timely warnings may be communicated through the UA Alerts notification system, which allows participants to choose to be contacted via text message, phone or email; via UAA email; broadcasts over classroom phones; posted signs; the UAA website; social media websites; the Seawolf Daily; the campus information phone line; and/or notifications to local radio and television stations. Registered students and current employees are automatically enrolled in UA Alerts. Update your contact information at UA Alerts. Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to UPD by phoning 786-1120 or going in person to the UPD dispatch center in Eugene Short Hall, Room 114.

  • Emergency Notifications

    The Incident Management Team (IMT), consisting of members from Student Affairs, University Police, Facilities and Campus Services, and University Advancement meets regularly during the academic year to discuss, plan, and address either current or potential incidents which may affect the Anchorage, Aviation Technology Complex, Chugiak-Eagle River, or University Center campuses. The IMT regularly sends email messages to staff and students to educate the campus communities about seasonal safety issues and what to do in the event of specific emergencies. 

    To report an emergency, dial 911, use an emergency phone in an elevator, or use a blue-lighted emergency phone on campus. Reports about all other police non-emergencies on the Anchorage, Aviation Technology Center, and University Center campuses should be directed to University Police (UPD) by phoning 786-1120. To report a police non-emergency on the Chugiak-Eagle River campus, dial the Anchorage Police (APD) at 786-8900. Reports about all incidents on the Chugiak-Eagle River campus should also be reported to the Campus Director by phoning 786-7600 or visiting Room 115 in the Eagle Center. In the event of hazardous materials, the Anchorage Fire Department (AFD) should notify UPD that they are responding to an incident. Conversely, in the event of fire, UPD will contact AFD to verify they are en-route. In the event of a public health emergency, University Police will coordinate with the Student Health & Counseling Center and Alaska Department of Health & Social Services. In the event of a natural gas leak, UPD will consult with utility responders to determine the size of the evacuation area. In the event that APD pursues a criminal onto campus, APD usually notifies UPD.

    UPD and/or IMT will notify the campus communities or the appropriate segment of the communities, upon verification of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of some or all students or employees occurring on campus. UPD and/or IMT will take into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification and initiate the notification system, unless notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.

    Due to the immediacy and nature of the incident, UPD and/or IMT may initiate the UA Alerts Notification System and send immediate notifications to the campus communities or the appropriate segment of the communities. The initial notification may occur through the UA Alerts Notification System which allows participants to choose to be contacted via text message, phone, or email;or via UAA email and/or broadcasts over campus telephones. Students and employees are automatically enrolled in UA Alerts. To update your contact information at UA Alerts.

    As soon as is practical, UPD contacts members of the IMT. If UPD has not already made an emergency notification, the IMT will determine who should be notified and the content of the notification. The IMT is charged with managing the emergency from onset to recovery. The IMT has both the decision-making and financial authority to address emergencies on campus. Both UPD and the IMT have received Incident Command System (ICS) training. ICS training is also provided to other selected University employees who IMT may call upon to help them manage an emergency.

    After the initial notification, the IMT may issue subsequent updates using the previously identified communication methods. The IMT will determine the content of subsequent updates. University Advancement may also post subsequent notifications on the Anchorage campus Twitter and/or Facebook, the Anchorage campus webpage, and/or the Anchorage campus information line at 786-1800.

    The IMT may issue subsequent notifications to specific areas on a campus, one entire campus, or multiple campuses. UPD or their agents may post flyers at each entrance to academic buildings affected by the emergency. Likewise, Residence Life may post flyers at the entrance to residence halls, the front door of each Templewood apartment, and/or the entrance to each Main Apartment Complex stairwell that is affected by the emergency. UPD may use public address systems in Rasmuson Hall, the Library, and the Student Union. UPD may make announcements using speakers on patrol cars or by walking around campus and using megaphones. Chugiak-Eagle River staff members may walk around the Chugiak-Eagle River campus to classrooms, offices, and the parking lot to make verbal announcements.

    University Advancement is responsible for issuing subsequent notifications and disseminating emergency information to the larger Anchorage and Eagle River communities by contacting local media including television and radio stations and appropriate agencies.

    In the event that a building needs to be evacuated, the occupants will be directed to the emergency assembly area by building safety coordinators. IMT may provide information regarding where events scheduled for that building have been relocated. In the event that an entire campus needs to be evacuated, the IMT may close that campus. In the event of a campus-wide evacuation, on campus residents would be asked to stay with relatives or friends in Anchorage. If on campus residents do not have local relatives or friends off campus, University Housing will coordinate alternate housing for on campus residents. In the event of an emergency, the IMT may ask everyone to shelter-in-place.

    The IMT makes safety announcements and reminders to the University community throughout the year. When the IMT needs to inform the campus community about school closures due to snow or other safety issues, notifications may be made using the following forms of communication:

    • UAA webpage
    • Campus Switchboard at 786-1800, press 2
    • Facebook
    • Personal notifications via email, telephone, and text messages from UA Alerts
    • UAA Twitter
    • Anchorage Daily News
    • Local TV Channels 2, 11, and 13
    • Radio Stations KSKA 91.1
    • Your UAA-assigned email inbox

    The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) regularly schedules exercises to test our emergency plans. In the past, Anchorage campus has invited APD, AFD, local hospitals, Joint Base Elmendorf Fort Richardson, and Alaska Pacific University to participate to test the coordination of multiple agencies to address an emergency. In the past few years, the Anchorage campus has conducted exercises on earthquakes, plane crashes, hazardous materials terrorism, and active shooter scenarios. In every planned exercise, there is an after-action review that is written and distributed to the IMT and administration. The Office of the Emergency Management keeps a description of the exercises including dates and times of the exercises and whether they were announced or unannounced.

    Once a year, campus building evacuation drills occur across the entire Anchorage, Aviation Technology Center, and University Center campuses. At these events, University Police hand out flyers explaining to students and employees what to do in the event of a building evacuation. The Emergency Manager keeps a description of each drill including the date and time and whether the drill was announced or unannounced. The Emergency Manager summarizes the results of the evacuation drills for each building and forwards a report to each Building Safety Coordinator (BSC). See evacuation results for different buildings.

    In coordination with campus building evacuation drills, campuses will publish their emergency response and evacuation procedures by including a link to the Emergency Operations Plan in a Green & Gold Daily announcement. UAA's Emergency Operations Plan and family of documents includes single-page incident actions plans for specific topics, i.e., fire alarms, pandemic illnesses, and suspicious packages or substances. These action plans apply to all UAA campuses. For further information regarding UAA's emergency response preparedness.
