Wesleyan's Emergency Preparedness System

As part of our emergency preparedness plan, Wesleyan has implemented a campus-wide emergency notification system (BlackBoard Connect) to alert students, parents*, faculty and staff of serious campus-wide emergencies such as catastrophic weather, accident or other life-threatening situations. This notification system will call pre-determind office, home and cell phones, as well as, send both text and email messages. At the start of each school year, we will conduct a test message to students, faculty and staff.

*Parent phone numbers can be included for specific campus-wide emergency situations. However, since the focus of the campus wide emergency notification system is to protect people on campus, we do not include parents in our preloaded emergency lists.
