SCU Campus Alert


eCAMPUS (login required)

Campus Safety Services recommends that all Students, Staff, Faculty, and Non-SCU Employees (when approved) enroll in SCU Campus Alerts to receive critical information when issued.

Rave Alert™ will be used to send SCU Campus Alerts (Emergency Notifications and Timely Warnings*) to the Campus Community via text message, voice calls, email, and in certain situations, social media. We thank you for your commitment in helping us maintain a peaceful, safe, and secure campus environment, accessible to everyone at the University.

Some examples of the types of information you might receive in an emergency:

  • Shelter in-place or evacuation order
  • Campus closure for any reason
  • Avoid a certain area of campus because of a localized emergency

Many of these situations require rapid response and notifications. The University's Campus Alert system is the primary method to accomplish this.

*Emergency Notifications Scope:

  • Wide focus which may include Clery Act crimes - Alerts the campus community about significant emergencies or dangerous situations.

*Timely Warnings Scope:

  • Narrow focus on Clery Act crimes - Alerts the campus community about crimes that pose a serious or continuing threat to safety.

The intent of SCU Campus Alert is to enable guests and members of the campus community to protect themselves and those around them.
