Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) sets the standards for America’s Safe Campuses

Multi-Channel Approach with Award Winning
Notification System

Virginia Commonwealth University has worked not only to create a clear policy around their alert notification system, but also a solid and proactive plan regarding who is involved in the alert notification dispatch and who they need to reach. They realize the different situations that students, employees, surrounding neighborhoods, and communities can be in and have a multi-channel approach to reach their constituents.

In the process of creating a safe campus, VCU needed a reliable and trusted notification system such as e2Campus uAlert™. Through one interface, uAlert instantly sends alerts to multiple channels reaching students, faculty, staff, visitors, parents, media, first responders, and others – wherever they are located.
