Alerts & Notifications

The Emergency Notification system is used to alert the community to an active emergency situation, school closing and any other event that requires immediate action from community members, for example, shelter in place. Your Mount Ida email address is already registered for notifications during emergencies.

Timely Warning Notifications

As mandated by the Jeanne Clery Act, at times it may be necessary to notify the entire college community of a situation that arises, either on or off campus, where the situation constitutes a continuing or ongoing threat against members of the Mount Ida College community. If in the judgment of the Chief of Police, such an incident occurs the Mount Ida College Police will clearly and quickly notify the entire college community of the situation by issuing a campus wide warning. The Mount Ida Police may use a variety of channels to issue the timely warning notification, including the emergency notification system, flyers and email.

If you have information that may warrant a timely warning notification, please contact Campus Police at (617) 928-4777 or at campuspolice@mountida.edu
