Emergency Notification System

Welcome Blackboard Connect

Cal State San Marcos is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of Blackboard Connect, a new component of our campus emergency notification system.

With Blackboard Connect, Cal State San Marcos can send time-sensitive messages to students, faculty and staff via SMS, e-mail and telephone within minutes. Our new partnership with Blackboard Connect provides us additional features not available in our emergency notification system before, geo fencing, reduced duplication of text and phone messages, supported languages (Spanish, Tagalog, Russian, Vietnamese, Czech, Chinese, Korean and Portuguese), outreach messaging, plus other great features we will be rolling out over the next year. The Blackboard Connect service will be used for timely campus wide Emergency Notifications and important updates. More information about the Blackboard Connect service may be found at : Blackboard Connect

We welcome Blackboard Connect to our Cal State San Marcos Family, helping us keep our campus safe.
