Update Your DUCC Contact Information

Stay Informed - Update Your Contact Information in the Darton Urgent & Crisis Communication System

Emergency situations, from natural disasters to health scares to the threats of violence, shed light on the fact that we must always be fully prepared. Accordingly, Darton College has implemented a Blackboard Connect service to enhance college-to-student and college-to-employee communication and emergency preparedness. The DUCC system is a communication service that enables key administrators and security personnel to reach all students and staff with personalized voice and text messages quickly to provide valuable information should a need arise. Darton College leadership cares about the safety and quality of education for its students and employees. This communication tool adds to our ability to provide an environment in which students and employees can feel safe and informed. The college will have the ability to send out two specific types of messages: Critical messages and Informative messages. The intent of a critical message is to provide subscribers with information that may prevent loss of “life or limb”. Informative messages will be used to contact subscribers with information that Darton has deemed to be valuable for you to know.

Darton College is working hard to provide you with the latest in priority messaging technology. Now you need to do your part. Please update your contact information as per the following instructions.
