The test will include text messages, desktop alerts, emails, social media and website announcements. The spring date was selected to test the implementation of a new signup process for faculty and staff affiliates of the campus.The new enrollment process achieves several long-standing goals of the emergency alert program. An immediate benefit, faculty and staff will no longer need to track a separate username and password for maintaining their contact information.Additionally, all campus affiliate email addresses will be loaded into the alert system, helping to ensure everyone will receive an email when that channel is used as part of an emergency message.Finally, this new data integration will provide a mechanism to remove people from the system when they are no longer affiliated with the university.All faculty and staff that wish to receive text alerts need to update their information, even if they have been previously subscribed to emergency messages.“In order to optimize CU Boulder Alert and directly connect it to our university’s data system of record, we must do a complete faculty and staff data refresh,” said Stuart Pike, CU Boulder emergency management director. “This new process will result in fewer issues for our campus affiliates and for the teams who troubleshoot messaging enrollment.”Additional reminders about the enrollment process will be sent to faculty and staff over the coming weeks.
