Important Information about the UMKC Emergency Alert System

By , August 30, 2016 11:52 am

UMKC AlertThe University of Missouri System installed a new emergency alert program for the four campuses this summer.  The Rave program replaced the former Alert system but works in a similar manner.  In the event of a natural disaster (such as the recent tornado warning), violent event or weather-related campus closing, an alert message will be transmitted to all faculty, staff and students via email, voice and text.

Existing UMKC phone numbers, umkc.edu e-mail accounts and information provided at the time of enrollment have already been entered in the system. Students can update that information at any time via Pathway.

Additional information can be found on the UMKC Emergency Alert System website. For specific questions about the Rave alert system, please contact Bridget Koan, koanb@umkc.edu.
