SNU Alert! is the emergency notification system that allows authorized SNU officials to send news and instructions simultaneously to individuals through landline phones, cellular phones, text messaging and email. The benefits of this system, provided by BlackboardConnect are its immediacy and direct access to individual campus members through multiple points of contact.
SNU Alert! is a complement to tools the university already has in place for response to arrange of a range of emergencies that may include weather related closings, environmental health crises, public safety incidents and other unique emergency situations. In the event of an actual emergency the university will continue to relay critical information using the most appropriate option of notification: SNU Alert!, SNU website announcements, university email, door-to-door notifications, posters, local radio/TV stations and/or the university’s main phone line.
All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to update their contact information through the emergency notification system site on SNU Portal. After logging on, go to WebAdvisor then Communication and then select SNU Alert Form. Each person can enter preferred contact information for phone messages, SMS text messages and email.
