Ithaca College implemented an Emergency Notification System (ENS) in 2007 to help improve communications to the campus community in the event of an emergency. Ithaca College has contracted with Blackboard to help provide the service.
By default, any emergency messages that are sent will go to all College e-mail accounts and to office telephones that are listed in the campus directory. The College has constructed a website that will give students, faculty, and staff the option of adding contact methods, including additional phone numbers, e-mail addresses and a cell phone number for text messages. For the Emergency Notification System to reach its fullest potential--enabling it to contact students, faculty, and staff in multiple ways any time and anywhere in the event of an emergency--everyone is encouraged to take advantage of this option.
The ENS will only be used in the event of a true emergency situation, in which it is vital to give immediate notification and instructions to the campus community. The contact information will not be used by the College or by Connect-Ed for any other purpose.
Please use this website to add additional contact information to the College's ENS system.
The ENS is part of the College’s overall emergency planning effort. The Ithaca College Core Emergency Response Team (CERT) meets regularly to assess preparedness and to develop timely, coordinated and effective responses to emergency situations.
