Developing and maintaining a true sense of community is among the most important functions shared by everyone at Lynn University.  In order to develop this fundamental attitude, we all must behave in ways that encourage civility, tolerance and inclusion.  A sense of community is promoted when we all display certain essential spirits: 
  • Feelings of Safety—You are cared for here.
  • Feelings of Value—You are important here.
  • Feelings of Belonging – You fit in here.
  • Feelings of Equality – You are treated fairly here.
  • Feelings of Responsibility to each other— You have obligations here.
At Lynn, we encourage all students to take an active interest in their campus and in the welfare of their fellow community members.  
 
The Department of Campus Safety provides the following services 24 hours per day, 7 days per week:
 
  1. Prevent and suppress crime, protect life and property, and preserve peace through conspicuous patrol of the Lynn University campus and surrounding community via foot, bike and motorized patrols.
  2. Direct efforts toward the development and reinforcement of good community-department -University-relations.
  3. Respond to calls for assistance, emergencies, and /or crisis intervention.

Each semester, you are asked to update your Emergency Contact Information to ensure that all contact information is up to date. You may do this by logging into MyLynn and clicking on Emergency Contact Information under Quick Links on the left side of the website. Along with your contact information, you may add up to two additional emergency contacts. It is imperative that the University has current information in the event of an emergency. 
 
Connect-ED, the emergency notification system, is built exclusively for post-secondary institutions. 
 
The Connect-ED service allows campus leaders and security professionals to send time-sensitive notifications to thousands of people in minutes. This system provides important information and reassurance to students, faculty, staff, and parents.  
 
To sign up for Connect-Ed, please visit the Emergency Contact Information Form on MyLynn. (https://my.lynn.edu/ICS/LifeatLynn/Campus_Safety_and_Security.jnz?portlet=Emergency_Contact_Information_(must_log_in)You must be logged into the system to access this form. 
 
The Connect-ED notification system would be used if one of the following is true:
 
1.  It is determined that there is an immediate, imminent and/or ongoing threat to the campus and/or community members. Some examples of this type of incident include; a building fire, gas leak, bomb threat, campus/local community flooding, active shooter, chemical spill or armed intruder. The Emergency Notification/Timely Warning will be issued as soon as pertinent information is available. 
 
2.  An event external to Lynn’s campus occurs that causes a campus-wide reaction: campus is locked down, evacuated, etc. An example of this includes police request campus lock down due to external incident.
 
3. The proper mix of communications channels will be decided on a case-by-case basis (i.e. issuance of Timely Warnings, Connect-ED, Campus-wide email, Emergency Notification):
-A targeted use of Connect-ED or full deployment of all modalities of communication, may be deemed necessary based on the nature of the event. Specifically, if the incident creates fast-moving misinformation via word-of-mouth and/or social media, the communications staff will recommend a targeted use of Connect-ED to help squash the rumors and reduce possible panic in false reported situations.
- Additionally, a campus-wide email should be used in conjunction with other communications channels. If it is determined that Connect-ED is not used, then the campus-wide email may be sent.
