"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 great addition to tools the university has in place for emergency response, such as 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 the university’s main phone line.
All faculty, staff, and students, are encouraged to update their contact information through the emergency notification system on the SNU Portal. After logging on, go to WebAdvisor, then Communication tab, and then SNU Alert Form. Each person can enter preferred contact information for phone messages, SMS text messages and email.
