What is and Emergency (Urgent) Communication?

Emergency or urgent need is defined as circumstances under which the appropriate college officer reasonably believes that notification of the college community, or a substantial subset, communicated over the space of several hours, will reduce the risk of personal harm, property damage, or severe negative impact on C-N operations.

Emergency Text Messages

The e2Campus text messaging system (cell phones) would be used for only emergency purposes, including disaster alerts and notification of an excessive interruption of the other two modes of communication.

External Mass Communication is available to some offices. Please contact ithelpdesk@cn.edu for more information.
