Central Alert

We are committed to the safety and well-being of everyone in the university community. This includes a commitment to timely communication in the event of an emergency. 

If an emergency occurs that may delay operations or close the university, all students, faculty, and staff will be notified via email to their CMU email address.

In addition, we offer an emergency notification system — Central Alert — to provide information to users by phone, email, and/or text message. The majority of faculty, staff, and students opt in to the Central Alert system automatically. However, we strongly encourage everyone to visit the Central Alert registration page to verify their subscription information.

Students, faculty, and staff are asked to provide their direct contact information to ensure they will be notified in a timely manner. This emergency contact information may include an alternate email address, home phone number, cell phone number, and/or SMS (text).

If you have any problems, contact the Office of Information Technology Help Desk at 989-774-3662, or for an online chat session, visit OIT's website.
