Risk Management


The Risk Management program assists university personnel through policies and practices designed to minimize the adverse effects of losses experienced by Sonoma State University, its employees, volunteers, students, and visitors.

The Risk Management web site provides resources to faculty, staff and students on how to report accidents, file claims, and includes all of the forms needed in these instances.

Emergency Management


The University is responsible for protecting the lives and property of every person on the campus in the event of an emergency. The Emergency Management Program establishes policies and procedures and assigns responsibilities to ensure the effective management of campus operations during emergency situations.

Emergency Management provides information that is helpful as you prepare for or respond to an emergency. Visit the web site to learn more about emergency notifications, emergency procedures, active shooter situations, and about the campus Emergency Operations Plan.

Transportation & Parking Services


The purpose of the Sonoma State University Transportation & Parking Program (TAPS) is to provide transportation and parking services for the campus community through the use of creative, innovative and proactive measures that support University-related policies, support the University mission and anticipate changing trends or events which may influence parking resources.

Parking Services provides most information you need to park on campus, including how to obtain parking permits, parking regulations, and information regarding parking citations and appeals.

TAPS coordinates the University's transportation programs, including policies regarding bicycling and skateboarding on campus. The transportation web page includes important safety information for bicyclists and information on ride-sharing.

Environmental Health & Safety


Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) provides training, monitoring, and program implementation for a variety of environmental compliance and occupational safety programs ranging from hazardous materials, animal control, water programs, employee safety, and industrial hygiene.
