SHU Public Safety Implements Emergency Notification System

Provides Public Safety Information to Faculty, Staff, Students, Alumni and Parents

Siena Heights University introduces a state-of-the-art notification system which instantly sends emergency messages to faculty, staff, students, parents and alumni. Once registered for SHU Alerts, users will receive alerts via mobile phones (via SMS text message), Blackberry’s, wireless PDA’s, text pagers, University and/or personal e-mail accounts, the University web page, personal portals such as My Yahoo, iGoogle, or My AOL pages, and RSS readers.  Implementation of the SHU Alert system will allow the University to quickly and efficiently contact registered users in the event of an emergency, crisis situation, school closing or other events requiring emergency notifications. SHU Alerts are available for all of the Siena Heights University campuses located throughout Michigan.

Siena Heights University strongly encourages faculty, staff, students, parents and alumni to register – it only takes a minute.  Users sign up for this service at no cost to the user unless their wireless service agreement charges for receiving text messages. This service is completely confidential; no information will be shared or sold.  For more information check it out at
