To provide a plan of action for an unexpected emergency or interruption of Loyola University Chicago operations that is beyond the scope of daily operating response procedures and to accomplish the following goals after an affected site/program/function has been rendered inoperable: safety of human life, protection of property/environment, continuity of academic/business operations, and restoration/replacement of regular University operations as soon as possible.
The governance structure is setup so that each of the 8 section leaders and their 14 division supervisors can each operate independently and in an autonomous manner. Each section is empowered to make decisions on behalf of the University, reporting back those decisions, communications, and issues should they arise into the Management, Policy & Command section.
