Emergency Notification System

The Emergency Notification System (ENS) is designed to quickly notify members of the campus community in the event of an emergency situation. It will only be used for emergency notifications. All members of the campus community will be registered in the system.

Notifications are sent via multiple communication channels including SMS text messaging, e-mail and voice mail. Multiple phone numbers and addresses per person may be stored in the system.

To register with the ENS, access Web Advisor through the campus portal at my.southwestern.edu. You will see a screen prepopulated with any known information about you. You may add or modify your emergency notification information at any time.

In all cases, there is no need to enter University phone numbers or e-mail addresses. This information will be automatically included for all faculty, staff and on-campus students.

Students should enter a mobile phone number, one alternate number, and one alternate e-mail address. Faculty and staff should enter a mobile phone number, a home phone number, one alternate number, and an alternate e-mail address if one is available. If you enter a number or e-mail address of someone other than yourself, please notify them so they will not be surprised when they receive a test or real emergency notification.

Consider that notifying other parties may be counterproductive especially if they are outside central Texas.
