The BenAlert emergency notification system enables students, faculty and staff to receive alerts and notifications within minutes by phone, text and/or e-mail messages regarding emergency situations affecting Benedictine University. Alerts are short messages about an urgent or immediate situation. Notifications are follow-up messages that may contain more detailed information that are not as time-sensitive.
Benedictine University's Emergency Response and Recovery Team (ERRT) urge all students, faculty and staff to update their personal contact information. Unlimited phone numbers and email addresses can be added. The BenAlert emergency notification system will leave:
- Voice messages to home, work, and cell phones
- E-mail messages
- Text messages to cell phones and other text-based devices
- Messages to TTY/TDD receiving devices for the hearing impaired
- All contact information that exist in Benedictine’s Peoplesoft system have already been entered into the BenAlert system. However, you must go into MyBenU to confirm or update your information, add additional contact information or opt out of this service.
