Dear Colleagues, Students and Friends,

I want to share with the campus my concern over a shooting incident that occurred at another university this afternoon.

We're still learning the details, but our hearts go out to the victims and families from Northern Illinois University. We probably will never understand exactly why these events unfold. They are rare events, but when they happen they send shockwaves throughout the nation.

At Northern Arizona University we work hard to do everything possible to ensure a safe working and learning environment on campus, but we always are looking for ways to improve our preparedness.

That is why I want to encourage every member of the Northern Arizona University family to sign up for NAU Alert, which is a very important text messaging tool to warn faculty, staff, students and friends in the case of an emergency. To sign up now, click here.
