What are Hope Alerts?

Hope College Campus Safety initiates the emergency response system (known as Hope Alerts) to notify the campus community upon confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurring on campus. Notifications are sent to the entire community by text message and email. Additional information will also be placed on inHope and hope.edu/alert as it becomes available.
