Rowan College at Burlington County utilizes a multi-modal communication service, to deliver time-sensitive notifications to students and staff. This system provides campus leaders and public safety professionals the ability to reach all students and staff with information and updates within minutes during unforeseen events or emergencies via phone calls, text messages, and emails.
In today's uncertain world it is best to take precautionary safety measures. We hope we never have to implement the system because of an emergency, however, the safety and security of our students and staff comes first and it is important to be prepared.
The communication system enables campus administrators to schedule, send, and track personalized voice messages to up to six phone numbers per person and immediately send messages via four different modes of communication including text messages, e-mails, and messages to TTY/TDD receiving devices for the hearing impaired. Notifying all students and staff immediately is crucial to keeping everyone safe and off campus in case of emergencies.
Telephone messages, using the primary listed phone number, will also be sent to remind students about deadlines for registration, dropping or adding classes and paying bills. Emails and primary phone numbers will also be used for general outreach such as the announcement of college events.
Students need to update their emergency contact information whenever they change a phone number or email address.
