Make an EPIC difference!

We’re looking for CI employees interested in making a difference by assisting in the University’s Emergency Public Inquiry Center (EPIC).  EPIC has been established to receive and process inquiries from students, parents, faculty, staff, University Glen residents, and the general public, during campus emergencies.

During emergencies, callers to the University’s emergency information hotline will have the option of speaking to a live operator with calls being directed to Technology & Communication’s Solution Center staff during normal business hours.

However, should a large-scale campus emergency arise that requires for calls to also be answered during after-hours, weekends or holidays, then a pool of CI employees will be called upon to assist with answering these calls.

Interested employees who can remain calm during emergencies will receive in-person and hands-on training prior to the start of each semester and will be compensated accordingly for hours worked in the EPIC during emergencies.

For additional information, contact Nancy Gill, Director of Communication & Marketing at 805-437-8456 or
