Rave Alert - Emergency Notification System
Recent floods have proven that the Incarnate Word campus is no stranger to severe weather conditions, and the safety of the UIW student body and university employees always comes first.
With this in mind, UIW announces a new emergency text and e-mail messaging service designed to let students, faculty and staff know when unsafe conditions arise: Rave Alert.
Rave Alert allows the university to communicate with its students and staff quickly in case of an emergency, using text messaging to student and employee cellular phones and Cardinal Mail addresses.
Rave Alert is an opt-in program provided to UIW by Rave Wireless, a leading provider of managed mobile phone services for higher education. “Opt-in” in this case means that students, faculty and staff must sign up to be included when emergency notifications are sent.
The easy enrollment process may be completed online, at www.getrave.com/login/uiw, using a Cardinal Mail username and password to log on.
Some enrollees may be charged to receive the text messages, depending on their cellular phone plans.
For more information, students may contact the UIW Help Desk at 210-829-2721.
