Knowledge of an ongoing emergency and the resources available to you are central components of preparedness. Through various methods, UNCG officials continually seek to keep the campus informed, in real time, of any incidents involving a potential threat to our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Just as situational awareness encourages you to be aware of your surroundings, to be informed encourages you to be aware of the University’s communication methods, how they are distributed, what type of information you will receive, and how quickly you can expect to receive it.

Emergency Notification System

The University Emergency Notification System is a communications tool used to notify the campus community about any situation or condition that could threat the safety of individuals on campus. There are three types of messages delivered.

For more information on notifications, view the University’s Notification Policy

Spartan Alert emergency alert message example.
An emergency notification is sent when there is confirmation of an immediate threat to the health and safety of the campus community. The alert will include a brief description of the incident, the location, and the actions to be taken, such as evacuate, secure-in-place, or shelter-in-place.
Spartan Alert safety message example.
A safety message is sent to inform the UNCG community of general safety information about crimes that have already occurred but represent an ongoing threat to campus. If available, the notification will provide information about the crime, a description of the suspect, and information that will aid in preventing similar incidents, including safety information and protective steps.
Spartan Alert test message example.
UNCG regularly issues a test of the Spartan Alert Emergency Notification System. This notification is sent for testing purposes only.
