This is an important message to the entire SCU Community - we are asking all of you to register for the SCU Campus Alert notification system. For those of you already registered, please verify your contact information is current.
One of the keys in any emergency is timely communication and SCU has a mass alert notification system called SCU Campus Alert. The SCU Campus Alert system allows us to send time-sensitive notifications to the SCU Community to those that have registered to receive them. SCU Campus Alert can store multiple telephone numbers and email addresses per participant; and when required, send simultaneous communications to all listed devices, including text messages to your cellular phone.
SCU Campus Alert is the primary means by which you will be notified in the event of an emergency that affects the campus and surrounding area and we strongly encourage all Faculty, Staff and Students to enroll. You must be enrolled in SCU Campus Alert to receive an emergency alert. Please take a few moments to enroll or if you have already enrolled, please verify your contact information is current. Instructions for doing this are listed below.
