DE PERE -- Emergency response procedures have long been a concern to Norbertine-sponsored St. Norbert College. This concern was heightened following last April 17's deadly killing spree at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va.

This fall, the college implemented a new emergency technology service called Connect-ED, according to Norbertine Fr. Jay Fostner, vice president for Mission and Heritage and co-chairperson of the Emergency Task Force Committee at St. Norbert College. Fr. Fostner co-chairs the committee with Eileen Janke, vice president for Business and Finance.
