Alert Systems

SCU Campus Alert and GTU-ALERTS are opt-in emergency notification systems available to all JST faculty, staff, and students. Alerts can be sent out via SMS Text Messaging, email and voice messages, as deemed necessary.

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 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, see: To register, click on SCU Campus Alert Registration Instructions, and follow the instructions.

Annual Security and Fire Safety Report

The Clery Act requires colleges and universities that receive federal funding to disseminate a public annual security report (ASR) to employees and students every October 1st. This ASR must include statistics of campus crime for the preceding 3 calendar years, plus details about efforts taken to improve campus safety.
