Campus Emergency Text Message Notification System Technology DepartmentUser Info 12/10/2015 3:00:00 PM

All Students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to register for the new University of Mary Emergency Notification System. The new replaces our current system and will enable the university to reach you with emergency information much more quickly by sending simultaneous text, email, web site notifications and social media postings on the university Twitter and Facebook pages. The new system will also enable us to send voice messages to all devices registered by students, faculty and staff to alert registrants of information critical to their safety and well-being.  The system provides multiple methods of fast delivery to ensure that you receive critical university notifications on safety issues, school closings etc.

The new system was made possible by the dollars generated by your parking and security fees.

This service will only be used for notifications of emergencies, closings, etc.  The information used when you register with the emergency notification system will not be shared in any way. Please also be advised we plan to run tests in the near future to insure that the new service is working properly.  You may receive two or three test messages after registering.

Information for registering to receive alerts using the new emergency notification system can be found at 8000.umary.edu. You may use the following link to take you to the registration location 8000.umary.edu.
