Emergency Communication Service

What is the Emergency Communication Service?

Concordia University Chicago offers an emergency communication service for students, faculty and staff. This service is provided on a voluntary, opt-in basis provided through cellular telephones, using both text and/or voice messaging. It is the responsibility of the individual person to provide their cellular phone number initially and to keep it up-to-date.

The emergency communication service will only be used to notify students, faculty and staff about the following types of urgent situations:

  • Health risk
  • Safety risk
  • Closure of facility
  • Cancellation or rescheduling of a course

The cellular phone numbers provided for this emergency communication service (a) will not be published in any directory, (b) will not be disclosed to anyone outside the University, and (c) will not be used for routine University communication with the individual.

As soon as new students, faculty and staff members have access to Concordia Connect, they are encouraged to opt-in for emergency communication service. Information on how to set up the service is available on Concordia Connect.
