Emergency Notifications

Emergency notifications may be triggered by crimes as well as such events as severe weather (e.g., an approaching tornado), natural disasters (e.g., an earthquake), outbreak of communicable disease (e.g., meningitis), or an accident inside a campus building (e.g., a lab explosion).  In compliance with the U.S. Department of Higher Education and the Jeanne Clery Act, the Sewanee Police Department will issue an Emergency Notification upon confirmation of an immediate threat to the campus community.
