Emergency Communication Options for Alverno

Communication in an Emergency

In the event of an emergency affecting Alverno College, we will communicate in a variety of ways so that you receive messages in a timely manner.  Emergency notifications are limited to such things as severe weather alerts, emergency building concerns, intruders or potential pandemics.  Following are the means of communication we currently have. 

  • send messages to your Alverno email address
  • place announcements on Alverno’s home page (alverno.edu)
  • send voice mail and text messaging to phone numbers registered on Blackboard Connect, a service for colleges and universities for their emergency communication
  • send “pop-up” messages to campus computers
  • make campus announcements through an outdoor speaker system and/or bullhorns

Registration directions for Blackboard Connect voice and text messages are available here.
