Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP)

Universities face unique vulnerabilities when faced with major disruptions like natural disasters or health epidemics. While Emergency Response Plans protect life and secure facilities, Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP) allows departments to continue or rapidly resume mission critical functions. Through continuity planning, we can all help maintain the operations of our individual departments and the University as a whole.

CSU has a subscription to Kuali Ready, an online continuity planning tool. This tool produces departmental continuity plans that can be used by any type of department. These plans increase SSU’s ability to continue operating in the face of disruptive events.

Emergency Services will be responsible for Kuali Ready training and education. However, we can’t build your plan for you! We expect each department to develop its own plan using this tool. We are here to assist and facilitate plan development.
