Indiana State University employs the RAVE Emergency Text Messaging System to send text messages to subscriber cell phones and/or e-mail addresses. This system will be activated when:
An “All Clear” text message will be sent when the situation has been resolved.
Any faculty member, staff member, or ISU student can sign up for this service using his or her ISU network ID and password. More than one phone number may be added by the user, to provide ISU emergency notifications to family members or other interested parties.
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the "Clery Act"), requires college and universities to compile and publish statistics on certain criminal offenses that occur on or adjacent to university properties. The Clery Act requires certain crimes reported to a Campus Security Authority (CSA) be included in those annual statistics. Therefore, CSA's must be identified and trained in their reporting responsibilities. Not properly identifying and training these individuals can cause the university to suffer significant fines and jeopardize Title IV funding.
Below are training documents for Campus Security Authorities:
