The BenAlert system enables students to receive alerts (short messages about an urgent or immediate situation) and notifications (follow-up messages that may contain more detailed information that are not as time-sensitive) within minutes by phone, text and/or e-mail messages regarding emergency situations affecting Benedictine. Parents may opt in via their student.
There is always a chance that an emergency and/or disaster could occur on the Benedictine University campus. Benedictine's Emergency Response and Recovery Team (ERRT) has developed an Emergency Response and Recovery Plan with the sole purpose of preparing the University community in the event of an emergency or a disaster. A copy is distributed to students, faculty and staff and also hangs in every campus classroom.
