The School considers the health and safety of its students, faculty, and staff to be of primary importance.
- Many of the materials and equipment used in creative processes can be hazardous to you and others if used incorrectly. Enrollment in a class requires students to know, understand, and comply with all material and equipment safe use policies in each classroom/studio. These guidelines are discussed and distributed to students early every quarter.
- The School's environmental health and safety policies and practices are compiled in our Safety + Emergency/Evacuation Plan.
- General information on use, storage, and disposal of hazardous materials is also in the manual. Information specific to a particular hazardous material is provided by the manufacturer in a document called a Safety Data Sheet (SDS). SDS documents are available through the instructional technician in charge of each School studio.
The University also takes health and safety seriously. Their Campus Safety & Emergency Resources webpage links to many important resources.
