Public safety advisories are distributed to the university community in compliance with the federal Clery Act. UIC Police may also issue notifications for off-campus crimes in the interest of public-safety awareness. Security tips are standard precautions, not special or incident-specific measures. Effective January 2021, the university will no longer routinely use race, ethnicity or national origin as a descriptor in public safety advisories. Updates to investigations are not sent by email but will be posted online at: emergency.uic.edu/public-safety-advisory/

Urgent notifications may be sent via both INSTANT TEXT MESSAGE (SMS) and URGENT mass e-mails. SMS messages — issued only in cases of immediate threat to health and safety, such as a tornado alert, or a major disruption to travel — are faster and more reliable than e-mail. The campus strongly recommends that you register your cell phone for SMS messages at sms.uic.edu
