Blackboard Connect 5 Emergency Notification System
Blackboard Connect 5 is an emergency notification system, which was activated on October 11, 2007. It is used to send time-sensitive notifications, including information about weather delays or closings, to students, faculty, and staff within minutes by voice mail, e-mail, and/or text message. Faculty, staff, and administrators can update their emergency contact information using the ADP Portal. Students can update their contact information using Self-Service.
In addition to our team of full- and part-time campus safety officers—as well as an on-call team—the campus is regularly patrolled by the local Lakewood Police Department. Golf cart, Segway, and bike patrols are also conducted on campus, as are foot and vehicle patrols. The buildings around campus and all elevators also have emergency phones, and there are 19 outdoor blue-lighted emergency phones on the campus so the campus safety team is always accessible.
