Emergency Alert System

Stay Up-To-Date

Denison University has enhanced its emergency response with an alert system that uses multiple delivery methods to provide emergency information to students and employees of the College. Denison has contracted with the Blackboard Connect Inc. to send information to the entire campus community in the event of an emergency.

It is quick, easy, and important.

Each student, faculty member, and staff member may select up to two e-mail addresses and three non-Denison telephone numbers to store in the system's database. The system has the capacity to send voice messages to landlines and cell phones and to send text messages to cell phones, e-mail addresses, and TTY/TDD devices for the hearing impaired. During an emergency, an alert will be sent to each phone number and e-mail address that campus community members have elected to store in the system's database.

The information for DU Emergency Alert will be kept confidential and will only be used in an emergency unless you provide expressed permission for other uses during the sign-up process. Students and employees are responsible for verifying and updating their personal contact numbers and e-mail addresses stored in the database.

(Please note: Blackboard Connect Inc. information is exclusive to their company. Changing the number in the Blackboard Connect Inc. database does not modify any information recorded in Banner, the College's database. To update information in Banner, students should notify the Office of the Registrar and employees should notify the Office of Human Resources.)
