Connect-ED® communication has been selected to deliver time-sensitive
notifications to students and staff. This service will provide campus leaders
and security professionals the ability to reach students and staff members with
information and updates during unforeseen events or emergencies, within minutes,
through phone calls, e-mails and/or text messages.
Connect-ED will allow us to keep students and staff informed whether they

Notifying students immediately is crucial in time-sensitive situations, such as
a severe storm or campus closure. It is important for students to enter their
contact information into the Connect-ED database. The more means we have to
contact individuals, the better our odds are of spreading timely information and
updates and keeping everyone safe.
Contact information included in the Connect-ED service will only be used for
campus notifications and will not be made available to any other service.
