6 of the 10 largest higher education institutions trust Everbridge to keep their campus safe

Creating a Safe Experience for Students and Faculty

Establishing a campus environment that is both open and safe for students and faculty and encourages community collaboration is a complex challenge. It can be difficult to know who is on campus and where they are at any given time. This information is vital during critical events to ensure the correct information is communicated quickly, easily and reliably to anyone impacted.  Campus-wide alerts about emergency situations, school closings and campus events keep the community informed while empowering students to become partners in their own security, whether they are on campus or off, or even studying overseas.
