Alert Systems

CU Emergency Alert System

In an effort to increase safety and security on our campus, Concord University uses an alert service from Omnilert. Alerts will only be used for security, safety, and weather-related notices. All students, faculty, and staff are automatically enrolled for email alerts. You may configure voice and/or SMS alerts as additional alert mechanisms. Visit to configure your alert preferences.
