Members of the campus community automatically receive email alerts and can also receive text message alerts by signing up through the Campus Alert link in CIS. Alerts provide timely, accurate information about active situations, protective actions to take during emergencies (such as severe weather, an earthquake or a violent attack), and other incidents on campus (such as COVID-19 information or other safety messages).
