TIMELY WARNINGS

Depending on the particular circumstances of the crime, especially in all situations that could pose an immediate threat to the community and individuals, the Business Services and Facilities Department will issue a campus-wide "timely warning." The warning will be issued through the university alert system to students, faculty and staff.

 

GGU-ALERT

Golden Gate University's Emergency Notification System informs members of the university community in the event of a disaster, emergency, or significant event that affects the campus-wide community. The system broadcasts messages (called GGU Alert messages) simultaneously to all registered users (students, faculty, staff and other authorized individuals) via a wide-variety of notification methods, including SMS text messages, phone calls, and e-mail.
