Campus Safety Services recommends that all students, staff, faculty and non-SCU employees (when approved) enroll in SCU Campus Alerts to receive critical information when issued. Other systems used are:
- GTU Alerts
SCU Campus Alert
SCU Campus Alert is the primary means by which you will be notified in the event of an emergency that affects the JST campus and surrounding area. Some examples of the types of information you might receive in an emergency include: shelter in-place or evacuation order; campus closure for any reason; avoid a certain area of campus or streets surrounding campus because of a localized emergency. When you enroll in Campus Alert, you will be asked to identify your campus location from a list of choices. Select "Jesuit School of Theology - Berkeley" to identify yourself to receive emergency messages intended for the JST campus. To learn more, navigate to http://scu.edu/alert.
Nixle Alerts for JST and the surrounding area
Campus Safety Services is subscribed to the Nixle service and receives alerts from the University of California and Berkeley Police Departments. Depending upon the location of the alert, and the incident's possible impact to the JST campus community, the Watch Commander will determine whether to forward the alert via email to JST students, staff and faculty. If you wish to sign up independently, please navigate to http://www.nixle.com/.
GTU-ALERTS is used to provide alerts in the event an immediate and life threatening event or other critical situation that affects all of the GTU member schools' campuses. Visit the link above for more information and to sign up for GTU-ALERTS.
