LU Alert Test – TODAY

The Fall Term test of the LU Alert system is scheduled for today, Thursday, October 5 between 11:00 am and noon.   At that time you will receive telephone calls, email messages and, if you have provided a cell phone number, text messages confirming the test.

This system is one of several Lawrence will use to communicate in the event of an emergency.  It provides Lawrence with an enhanced ability to communicate quickly to large numbers of students, faculty, staff and emergency contacts using multiple communication channels — email, office phones, cell phones and text messaging.

  • Of the delivery options, email and text-messaging have been the quickest and most reliable methods.
  • The delivery of messages via cell phones is faster, but may also be limited by the capacity of some network providers. If you want to be notified of a campus emergency via cell phone, please verify that your cell number is listed on Voyager.

As members of the Lawrence community, we all have a responsibility to ensure effective communication in an emergency. Thank you for your support.
