Keeping the Community Informed

Emergency Notifications

Immediate notifications will be issued via the university electronic notification ZagAlert system.

In the deployment of the ZagAlert notification system, recipients will simultaneously receive voice messages to all numbers provided, text messages to all mobile numbers provided and email messages. Alerts will indicate areas to avoid, and whether community members are advised to evacuate or remain in place. Due to the urgent nature of the message contents,

In order to register for the ZagAlert system, Gonzaga students, faculty and staff can enter both a mobile phone number and email address within ZagWeb by:

1. Logging into ZagWeb using your Zagweb User ID/PIN

2. Clicking on “ZagAlert” and entering your mobile phone number and email address

3. Clicking “Submit”

If you are not current student, faculty or staff but would like to receive emergency notifications, go to www.gonzaga.edu/zagalert and follow the instructions for using the Blackboard MyConnect app to subscribe to alerts.

Gonzaga University also maintains a commitment to disseminating emergency information to the larger community. The “Emergency Information” Quick Link at the bottom of the main Gonzaga web page (Gonzaga.edu) shows a color-coordinated real time update of emergency conditions on campus, as well as emergency-related resources. In addition, the system will update Gonzaga’s Facebook Page (Facebook.com/GonzagaUniversity) and Twitter (Twitter.com/Gonzaga.edu) with information and instructions. In certain circumstances, in addition to ZagAlert notifications, the University may also utilize various public address (PA) systems, or post bulletins on building entrances and exits. PA system alerts and bulletin posts may be segmented depending on incident location and severity. 

Timely Warnings

Timely Warnings are issued to inform the community about crimes or campus activity that present an immediate, serious, or ongoing threat to the community. Often, the intent is to alert community members of a potentially dangerous criminal situation or an ongoing community threat so that they have the time and information necessary to take appropriate precautions, and prevent similar crimes. Timely warnings will include specific details on the type of crime(s), general location of the crime(s), and any relevant instructions or recommendations for promoting safety and reducing the risk of similar crimes from occurring. Timely warnings are developed and issued by the Campus Security & Public Safety Department via Priority Mail.
