For true campus emergencies, Goodwin College uses the Everbridge emergency communications system (http://www.everbridge.com). Everbridge sends notifications to employees and students via a number of venues: text, cell phone, email, home phone, work phone, etc. Everbridge is also used by local law enforcement agencies and is a comprehensive tool in strengthening campus safety. This system is only engaged in a situation that poses a threat to the College community. It is not used for weather closings (see section above). New employees are added to the roster at the beginning of each month. At the beginning of the fall semester, a full refresh of employee data will be entered, and employees will be prompted to log in and review their preferences.
