University President Soraya M. Coley shares a message about campus safety.

Emergency Resources Help Ensure Safety on Campus

Safety is the university’s top priority, and it’s important for each person to be familiar with the related resources on campus.

Safety Alert System

The Safety Alert System sends important messages to the campus community during urgent situations. The system can send simultaneous notifications through text messages, email and phone calls.

To ensure that you receive the Safety Alert messages, log into BroncoDirect and update your personal information.

Because cell phone text messages can reach people faster than traditional phone calls and emails, it is important that you include your mobile phone number. The system will send a confirmation text before you can receive any text alerts. Follow the instructions
