In CMU's continuing efforts to enhance its communications with students, faculty and staff during an emergency, Central Alert, the university's emergency warning notification system, will be upgraded May 14.
The upgrade will automatically enroll students to receive Central Alert messages and make it easier for them to select options on how they receive notifications. Central Alert sends messages via phone, email and text.
The change also will provide more obvious options for current faculty and staff to change their system settings if they so choose.
What faculty and staff need to know:
Faculty and staff will continue to be automatically enrolled to receive Central Alert messages. However, for employees who wish not to receive notifications regarding the main CMU campus, changes will be made to simplify opting out.
Instructions on how to change your settings or opt out of Central Alert will be provided just prior to implementation of the upgrade.
Anyone with questions can call or email the Help Desk at ext. 3662 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
