EH&S Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) at UC Santa Cruz is to ensure a safe working environment, help units meet regulatory expectations, support campus health and wellbeing, and protect our remarkable natural assets.

EH&S strives to build constructive relationships with colleagues by demonstrating empathy, holding ourselves to a high level of integrity, and being open-minded about campus challenges, while balancing campus needs with available resources. We value technical excellence, collaboration, and inclusion of multiple viewpoints in all that we do. By following these values, we contribute to an efficient, effective, resilient, and sustainable campus.
