Especially for Parents

In the event of a campus crisis, EMU will make communication with parents top priority. In today’s world of instant communication with cell phones, texting, and other social media, misinformation or confusing information can spread quickly.

EMU’s Crisis Management Preparedness Team’s goal is to provide clear, transparent, honest information via text alerts, the EMU website and email for parents first in conjunction with communication to the campus community. EMU will be in direct contact with parents of students who are directly involved with any crisis situation as soon as possible.

In some situations, an emergency hot line phone number will be published for parents to access EMU personnel directly. That number will be posted here and prominently in other places on the EMU website.
