About Campus Advisories

CSE recognizes and monitors ongoing activities at both the local and national levels. If an emergency situation arises, please check the Safety and Security web page for updates or call the College Emergency Information Line at (973) 290-INFO (4636).

Emergency "Blue Light" Phone System

An emergency telephone system is located throughout the college campus.

Emergency Call Boxes are located outside the main entrances to both Founders and O'Connor Hall. In addition, "blue light" emergency call stations are located in the lower level parking lot of Saint Joseph Hall, the O'Connor Hall residence parking lot, the Annunciation Center parking lot, and on the pathway between Founders Hall and Henderson Hall.

By touching just one button, these stations enable students to directly contact either campus security or the Florham Park Police Department.

Emergency Response

When a serious incident is reported, the College implements its emergency response plan.

In an emergency or a criminal action endangering some or all of the Campus community or its neighbors, the President will consult with appropriate administrators and local authorities to establish a plan of action including the means of communicating with all persons affected or at risk. In other cases, the administrator within whose scope of responsibility the incident occurs is responsible for evaluating possible recurrence and future risk potential. Based on this assessment, they may recommend corrective policy and/or procedure to the President.

In the event of a campus-wide emergency, all members of the College community will be contacted through our Send Word Now notification system. This system allows College officials to simultaneously send messages to all office phones, home phones, cell phones and email addresses listed in the central administrative computing system at the College.

This emergency message will provide detailed response instructions for students, staff and faculty. It is expected that all members of the campus community will cooperate fully with the instructions provided.

It is also expected that all students and employees of the College will keep their contact information in the system up to date. This information can be updated here.
