Emergency Preparedness & Notifications

To help prevent crimes or other serious incidents, the security department, in conjunction with members of the crisis management team, issues campus safety alerts in a timely manner to notify community members about certain crimes in and around our community. Members who know of a crime or other serious incident should report that incident as soon as possible to the department of security so that a campus safety alert can be issued, if warranted.

If community members report crimes or serious incidents to other university administrators, those administrators will notify the security department. Representatives of these offices will promptly notify and collaborate with security and members of the crisis management team to issue a campus safety alert, if one is appropriate.

Blackboard Connect

Blackboard Connect enables Indiana Tech to share vital campus safety information quickly and accurately through a variety of media. Depending on the situation, alerts and information may be sent through:

  • Text messages
  • Voice messages
  • Email
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Public address announcements

You do not need to sign up for this service; all current students, faculty, and staff are automatically included. However, we must have correct contact information on file to ensure that we can notify you of campus closings or emergency situations.
