Mitigation: Protection

Lewis & Clark employs many strategies to protect its community and resources from potential natural and human-caused hazards. Protective steps the College undertakes include, but are not limited to, the following measures:

  • Access control for restricted areas, such as residence halls and labs
  • Identity verification
  • Cybersecurity
  • Interdiction, disruption, and intervention strategies are designed to defuse potentially dangerous situations
  • Pre-employment screening
  • Detection devices, such as surveillance cameras and smoke detectors, to monitor hazards and alert campus personnel of danger
  • Threat assessment by the Welfare Intervention Network (WIN) to identify and assist individuals who are or could become a threat to themselves or others
  • Implementation of the Emergency Notification System (ENS) for campus community members


Protection endeavors are typically implemented by members of Campus Safety, Information Technology, and WIN.
