Quick and reliable communication is critical during a campus emergency. At Rowan, we rely on a number of ways to communicate to our students and employees, including email, voicemail, Internet and the media (i.e., radio, television and newspapers). The Virginia Tech tragedy, however, demonstrated that these modes are not enough. Universities must utilize the latest technologies to communicate to their constituents in minutes, not hours.

With that as a goal, Rowan is encouraging all of its students and employees to register with the Rowan Text-Message Alert System. Subscribers will receive instructions about class cancellations and/or University emergencies on registered cell phones and pagers.

To subscribe, please visit www.rowan.edu/emergency. You will need to have your cell phone with you to complete the registration process.

In addition to subscribing to the Rowan Text-Message Alert System, you may want to register your cell phone with the Gloucester County alert system at http://www.gloucesteralert.com. Both programs are free and provide users information in a timely manner.

If you have any questions or concerns about the Rowan Text-Message Alert System, feel free to call the technology Support Desk at 856-256-4400.
