Emergency
& Threat Information

Shooter on Campus

Recent history suggests that active shooter incidents are rising on college campuses across our country. Loyola University New Orleans wants you to know we have developed comprehensive tactical and operational plans to respond to such incidents on campus. These are reviewed and exercised annually and have multi-agency coordination addressed within them to ensure an effective and efficient response.

During such acute, no-notice incidents, communication to the campus community is paramount. Emergency Alerts (text messaging for example) are the primary method we deploy to reach the campus community. Without the ability to reach you, we cannot obviously inform you of a valid threat. Ensure you are signed up for Loyola Emergency Alert Notifications in order to quickly receive critical information via text messages.
