Emergency Notifications

In the case of a campus emergency, we utilize the Everbridge app that is designed to keep students, faculty and staff informed. This app allows University officials to quickly contact registered recipients to communicate important information during any potential emergency, such as severe weather, fire or other crisis event.

CAMPUS SECURITY AUTHORITIES & RESPONSIBLE EMPLOYEES

While anyone can report incidents there are two legally defined roles that are required to make notifications. These are Campus Security Authorities (CSA’s) and Responsible Employees.

CSA’s are individuals with significant responsibility for campus and student activities, such as campus police/security, resident assistants, coaches, and club advisors.

A responsible employee is any employee who has the authority to take action to redress sexual violence, who has been given the duty to report to appropriate school officials about incidents of sexual violence or any other misconduct by students, or who a student could reasonably believe has this authority or responsibility.
